I’d like to start an organic vegetable garden. Is it too late to plant? I’m a beginner, so what would be the best (as in easiest) plants to grow? The garden is about 12 feet square and gets about 8 hours of sun a day. — Anne T., Croton-on-Hudson
We recently moved into a Cape-style house that has good curb appeal except for the driveway, which is weedy gravel with a couple of potholes. My neatnik husband wants to pave it with asphalt, but I think that would be out of place in our rural setting. We have a limited budget. What are the options?
