Victory garden

Asked March 1, 2013, 8:19 AM EST

I am starting a small garden in my back yard. I have spoken with several friends their grandparents allways had a garden they want to start one
and have no idea how to begin. I have tried and failed a couple times but I keep going. I got two tomatoes last year. I just figured out my dirt is clay and i need to add something other than fertilizer.
IT would be helpful to have a step by step guide for a small urban garden. Not a planting schedule. Starting from grass square in a backyard.
