Hello everyone. I was not not very fond of gardening (or any kind of yard work), but I hope this mentality can change. I want to love gardening a being able to grow my own food. That is my future goal. I am currently living in duplex, with not too big of a yard. And I was thinking of perhaps starting my own vertical garden. Is this a good idea for a beginner? I realized how pathetic I am with plants when I tried to pluck a red mini pepper off a vine and couldn't do it at first but then it came off. Where would be a good place to start for a beginning gardener? I want to be able to grow ALL my food in the future, and that would include growing wheat to make bread, having a vegetable garden, an orchard for fruit. For now I guess I could gain experience for what I want to do in the future. But what would be the best way to prepare myself for a future I described above? Does anyone here live in such a manner? I would like to hear the opinion of all. How much time would doing something like growing ALL your food take, once all is set up? How long does gardening or part time gardening (if that exists) take? I would really like to get my hands dirty and start, but am curious how much time this takes and if anyone here has any experience or advice to share. Thank you.
