SunGold tomatoes, blackeye peas, carrots and various cabbages for the garden (brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower)

then mostly purple white and blue asterids for me, and yellow asterids for the family...

I also will be planting innumerable shade tolerant houseplants for the dwelling, AMA

Sprouts are one of my all favourite things to grow.
Same with Tomatoes, if you have a shed to hang them in to ripen them you can ripen them to the perfect consistency. They're pretty easy too.
Potatoes are good too if you have some spare tires hanging around, beans too.

easy;

LIGHT AND WATER

have land? FULL SUN.

takes all day sun; carrots tomatoes, legumes...

no land? FULL SHADE

pansies, houseplants, spiderwarts

most food production plants need full sun. that means 6+ hours of hot sun, daily. evening sun adds more energy than morning sun, so for example a partial shade/ part sun tolerant plant will produce more on a south or west side of a dwelling in the northern hemisphere.

apartment? lrn2pots and windowbox

Redpill me on gardening, how deep does this rabbit hole go? How do I start one in my small apartment?

First you visit the local hydroponics store and get the necessary supplies to make a garden in your closet.

Then you start growing some weed.

I'm allergic to flowers and I blame all of you degenerate gardners for me being sick every day. Every time I walk outside of my damn house my allergies begin to act up and I feel like I'm actually fucking dying. I've went to a fucking doctor about this but none of my damn allergy medication worked so now I'm stuck suffering, feeling like I'm about to fucking die every time I leave the house. I hope each and every one of you rots

Stop and think about what he's asking. He wants all flowering organisms on the planet to die. That means all plants will be dead.

You know what feeds off plants? Animals. So all animals will be dead.

He and the rest of the human race will die of starvation long before his allergies ever clear up.

Maybe he can just keep going to his doctor and stop expecting immediate gratification.

maybe if his parents werent such hippy peaceniks doting over their precious "river" "rainbow" or whatever his name is, and let him play in the dirt once in a while without sanitizing his hands with alcohol every time they got a brown smudge on them, he wouldn't have his allergies. it's just the planet trying to weed out the weak. blame your parents.

So, for those of you in the Colonies who can legally grow sweet leaf, any pointers?

I know the key timeframe is during the spring into early June, but would it be too late to plant them now? If so, at least to ready some for pumpkin pie?

You might be pushing it, and don't count on anything for Halloween. But if you live in the southern half of the US you should be fine.

Hey how about some reference material? Share what you have on gardening.

Here is a trove I ran across a while back.

What advice would you give to someone who hasn't yet really tried their hand at gardening but might want to give it a go? Common mistakes to avoid, oft overlooked details to remember, reliable resources to keep bookmarked or on the shelf, that kind of thing.

depending on how your yard. spend a couple days tracking the sun to find which parts of the yard get the most sun. build your beds around that and how well you can get water to it.

as >>13 said light and water are your frienemies.

also use rock dust to mix in with your soil/compost to help keep minerals in the soil for several growing seasons.

Crop rotation and companion planting even on a small scale makes a big difference. You have to pay attention to your garden. You have to work with it every day.

>The easiest plants to grow are native plants.
Not entirely true. The easiest plants to grow are invasive species. Of course most invasive species are as edible as kudzu or bamboo.

Some tiger melons and tomatoes I grew a few years ago.

I really want to get started again; but it's so much work!

In that case I'd suggest building raised beds completely cut off from the bad soil. Basically a big box.

After they died we let the bank have the place. The bank sold it to some jackass who bought it to flip it, only to realize he couldn't, so now some drunken hillbillies are renting it and driving everyone else out of the neighborhood.

Still, a good idea. Too bad they never tried it and the hillbillies have parked a busted car over where the garden was.
