Victory Garden

So, spring is coming, and I want to plant a garden. I like the idea of calling it a victory garden, cuz that just makes it sound so much cooler. Big problem, though, I have no idea how to grow plants. I don't know what to plant, where to plant it, when to plant it, how to grow it... I don't know ANYTHING. We had a garden a few times growing up and you'd think I'd have learned from all the hours of weeding, watering, and protecting the seedlings from the chickens. (They got all our good stuff and we were left with zucchini. Lots and lots of zucchini.) What do I do? Anyone know anything about growing a garden? James and I have discussed buying earth boxes, since we don't have a yard to speak of. But heyond that, all I know how to do is stick seeds in the ground and hope. There's more to it than that, isn't there?
