I live in upstate NY (near Plattsburgh - 45 miles South of Montreal) and am interested in growing a vegetable garden this year. My father-in-law had one a few years and I will be plating where he did. I have a few questions for some of the experienced people in here: Can I just rent a roto tiller and and till the area or do I need to have a tractor plow it? I will probably try to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, lettuce, peas. When should I plant the sees? Anyone know of any good websites to get more info on gardening. Thanks.
