My current garden is very small and i can hardly fit a few tomato plants and some herbs. So I have been planning to make another garden in my backyard..fun right? Well I had thought that I should put it on my already nicely grassed yard or mabey since we have a lot of woods in the back I could put it there... to salveage some grass and all I would have to do is chop down some weeds and pray that the deer wont eat my veggies. Since I dont know much about landscaping I'm asking all of you if you think that I should put my new garden on the part of my yard that has grass on it or put it in the woods after I clean it up?HELP!!!

Depending on what you want to grow, (esp veggies) i would go with the place that gets the most sun throughout the day.

Definitely true re: putting the garden where the best sun is. Also, either way, I think it's much easier to make a raised bed using some 1x4's and tossing in some nice new soil and soil additives (peat, compost, whatever you want) in to the frame. It adds definition to what you're doing, and in the fall, you can just dig in the corpses of your summer veggies, add leaves, and it will turn into locvely soil again, without the worry of trying to remember which dead patch of plants is your garden and which is just dead weeds!

I never really had a problem with deer in my garden. but I do a lot of tomatoes and eggplant and peppers. I do have a problem with the bunnies...

I agree with the maximum sun. BE sure and check your soil too, take a soil sample and test it with a home PH kit, or send it to a state agricultural center (cooperative). All the ones I've ever sent samples to (Virginia, NY and CT) provided this service for free.
