Hi I am new here to JM and to the Gardening world. I wanted to do a Garden last year but had issues when I went to dig with a very rocky landscape. We need to have a raised garden bed which we couldn't afford last year that I am hoping to do this year.

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what I should do to start out. Should I start seedlings or Directly plant into the garden? Any advice will be helpful. Thanks.

Welcome!
I'm afraid I can't offer much advice on your gardening situation as I'm entirely unfamiliar with your area. Starting early vs direct seeding depends on what you're growing and in what climate. One thing I can suggest is to read up on plants that can handle your existing conditions. That way you can create raised beds as money and time permit but still have nice things growing in places that you haven't gotten to yet. To my knowledge, most plants that tolerate poor soil tend to be pretty low maintenance leaving you with more time for your raised beds.
Best of luck!

If you have never gardened before I would recommend direct sowing.
