SciFiChick this morning, she had a post on starting seeds. Got me to thinking I need to get my garden ready. Around here (Florida) I like to have a garden in around March 1st but in order to do that I like to plow it at least twice before I plant, allowing seeds to sprout or weeds to come up before I plow again so I get a good kill. On a small garden you can lay a tarp or black plastic out on the ground to kill all grass in the area. One of my favorite things to grow is bush beans (green beans) they produce almost all summer and can be picked almost every day. I have about given up on growing corn as the varmints get to it before I do, squirrels are the worst, I have seen them shuck and eat the corn right on the stalk. I live in a suburban area but have two acres with woods and a creek nearby so critters are in abundance.
