Garden: Day One

I decided last weekend to grow a garden, start with some vegetables and herbs. Saw a book online called "Square Foot Gardening", I asked my local bookstore to order it. That should come in this week. But anyway, so on Monday I dug a section in my tiny back yard (0.11 acres) for a garden. Four feet by twelve feet, it doesn't seem big but I got tired pulling grass out of that area. I dug down two inches and now planning on break up the next three inches and mix some organic compost. So on Thursday afternoon hopefully I can out there and finish that step. This weekend I am planning on sowing some seeds indoors. I have one type of carrots, lima beans, two types of lettuce and a bunch of herbs for my wife.
