Vegetable Gardening

Anonymous added on March 17, 2014 | Answered

I have a square shaped backyard that I would like to use for vegetable and flower gardening, but I don't know how to begin. I know I need a plan, but where can I look? Also, my big problem is that I have a French drain that runs across the middle of my yard; it always stays moist there. Could I use that strip to make a raised bed and plant tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons there? The plants would always have moisture, if not a lot of water at times.
