Time to Plan my Garden!

OK so I am ready for winter to be over it was fun but it's been COLD recently!

I want to plan my garden, I can make one pretty much any size I like so space is not an issue (we have a backyard that is approx. 150'X100' plus have use of the field behind our house it's about 2 acres (I donít want a 2 acre garden though)).

We are in Zone 4B (as far as I can tell). Tomatoes do REALLY well here, sweet peppers do fairly well, most of the other things we have tried have gotten over run by weeds (oups! forgot to pull those pesky weeds again (any suggestions in that dept.?)). I LOVE fresh herbs & salads, I would like to grow more fruits & veggies to cut down on our grocery bill (freezing & canning).

I also would like some suggestions for flowers for our front yard (borders) something that I wont have to babysit & will look pretty good even when not in bloom, oh & if it chokes out anything else that tries to grow (ie: grass & weeds that would be a bonus). This is mostly just to keep the neighbours happy because personally I donít like having to put effort into something that gives me nothing back (ie: food) & planting vegetables in the borders just doesnít seem right.

Oh we have LOTS of sun so anything we plant has to like sun (we have only a few shady spots & only one where I would be able to plant vegetables and 1 or 2 for flowers).

Thanks for your input!
