D asks: grow own vegetables, furit & nuts getting started for dummies?
I want to stop majorly contributing to the pollution of this planet that we call home but don’t treat like a home.
I want to start buy growing my own organic food & never going to a supermarket again but the only thing i know about gardening is weeding & Literally that is all i know,
so im asking all you lovely gardening experts for tips, books, websites etc ETC
on the very basics like making garden beds, what tools to, what i use as an organic fertilizer if at all.
I have a totally blank clean slate on gardening so even the basics that you think every body knows i don’t know
if u are about to answer & your answer isn’t something i dint want to hear
then thank you very very much so appreciated as this is very important to me

There are whole books on the subjects you ask about.
My best advice is start small. Beginners often put in a too-large garden, get overwhelmed, then give up on the whole thing. This spring, maybe plant a couple fruit trees, and maybe a hazelnut shrub. If you want a veggie garden, put in a few tomatoes or peppers (popular first veggies).
Right now, go to the library, and grab a huge stack of books on gardening, vegetable gardening, growing fruit, and the like. Flip through and make sure there are lots of pictures – gardening is visual, and an all-text book on gardens is not for beginners. Take ’em home, peruse them, let them inspire you, give you ideas.
The tools you’ll want are a spade, a hand pruner, and a trowel. I like a heavy garden fork. Every gardener will have favorite tools, but you don’t need very many at all.
