They will grow easy enough with no experience, and you can buy them from a place like TYTY.com for cheap where they are already started for you. Then just play with one or two annual varieties from seed (tomato, squash, carrot, whatever) until you feel comfy growing them and build your food arsenal...
@Francis - Have you actually ordered from TYTY before?[/quote wrote:
Yes sir I have. Do people really recommend stuff they have never used? I actually did have a bad experience with them last fall/early winter, it was not in any way their fault however! What happened with my experience was I made an order expecting it for a late fall planting, but I wanted to ad to my order so I went to their site and it was gone, phone dead too. I was pissed even though they never charged me. What happened is they had a massive computer issue (800# tied into it) and they lost over a thousand orders due to a technology failure. Once I learned what happened I placed my order again, and will again in the future. I felt terrible for them, that is the kind of stuff that can kill a business, especially when asses without a clue of what happened go on ranting without all the info.
Raintree is fantastic also as far as quality. But they have ZERO spirit for what they do, or offer,,, no spunk. I love the cheesy videos at TYTY and their plants are shipped in water retentive material and tightly wrapped. Never a dry root, never a badly broken plant, never a mislabel? Though they have included free trees as a bonus....
I have put over a hundred trees in the ground just this late winter for myself and another (the order that was supposed to be for early winter), All TYTY. Not to mention three or four dozen last year.
So any who, I dig them, and love the attention they give to each plant on their site.
