Q.What Type of Plant Should I Grow in My Garden?

Anonymous added on May 15, 2011 | Answered

I have a small area, about 8 feet by 5 feet, that I’d like to grow some things in, but I’m not sure what. I’d like to grow herbs, fruit, or vegetables, but I don’t know what kind, and I’m very new to the world of gardening. I live in Minnesota and have a Minnesotan climate. The plot is next to the house and gets morning sun and afternoon shade. I prefer something low maintenance, but if it’s not that’s fine. I’m not certain what type of soil it is, but it seems to be pretty rocky. So, what type of plants would grow well here?

A raised bed might fit your situation best. When choosing vegetables, pick ones that are more easily grown, suitable to your area, and only those you actually will use.
