I dream of a garden

So, it’s official, we’ve decided to move. Soon-ish. Hopefully. But we’re not quite ready to buy yet. After much discussion, the official plan is to rent in the neighborhood we’re hoping to buy in for a year, to get a feel for the area first. But I still want a house! A yard! And not just any yard, I want to grow vegetables. A few springs past we grew vegetables in pots on the top of our apartment building. The greens flourished, but everything else was a bit pathetic. I think we made poor choices for our grey Seattle weather. A friend mentioned that root vegetables do well here. Carrots, beets, parsnips, rutabaga, radishes, turnips, potatoes, onions…! Hooray! I’m really hoping we find a place this spring with a great yard.

Have you ever grown anything successfully? Any tips for this newbie gardener/dreamer?
