When, Lord willing, we get back to North Carolina, I want to start a garden. I've never gardened. I am not even really sure I'd enjoy it. But, I'm sick of paying exorbitant amounts for produce and getting waxy fruit, veggies that don't last and herbs that cost more than a pack of diapers.
I have no idea where to even start, though. What I'm really wanting is something online to help me out. In my perfect world, there would be a program that asks me what I'd like in my garden, the state in which I live (for climate and soil,) and the amount of land I have available? Then it would spit out a picture result of how exactly I need to lay out the garden. It would show me that the tomatoes need to be by the lettuce because of....well, whatever. If I knew where the tomatoes were supposed to go and why, I wouldn't need the program.
Then it would give me more pictures of the tools I would need to get said garden started. It would also provide me with a reminder system. It would be linked to the local weather to let me know that Saturday would be a good day to water the garden, because it'll be nice and cool. But don't water on Monday, because it's going to rain.
See...how hard is that? Is this really too much to ask?
