      Virgin vegetable gardening: First plant(s) to try: when and how?

      Friday, June 25th, 2010

      Last two times I tried gardening: 1st time my neighbor (at my previous home) laughed (kindly) and told me the tall pepper plants I was so proud of were weeds (and there were no pepper plants to be found. 2nd time: I bought the container of minature boxes with the plastic cover of plants to soon and by the time it was planting season they were useless.
      What should I try, how and when? Keep in mind every plant that has entered my house has left in a "coffin" within a year. Unfortunately I’m not big on details; if it doesn’t "speak" (like a cat) it doesn’t get what it needs. Know of any plants that can tell me what they need, how much and when?
