Planting a garden probably isn't as hard as you think it is. Dorinda Jones, garden manager with Utah State University Extension Services, said those who start small, prepare the soil, plant at the right time and water properly will likely have a very productive and enjoyable garden.
The best advice Jones has for beginning gardeners is to start with a manageable space.
"Try to start in an area that's not too big. People get so excited in the spring and clear a huge area and take out sod. They start tilling, weeds start popping up and they get discouraged. Weeds take over and they forget about the vegetables," she said.
Jones recommends starting out by planting something easy, like radishes.
