While the weather is still cold...Take some time to work out what you like to eat and want to grow.Make a seed list. Make a rough plot plan...Draw in your beds and paths etc (if you haven't already got any). If you have a water supply on or near your plot decide which plants need the most water and situate them near to the water source for the first season. That way you can save time when watering in the (mornings) and or evenings. Start "collecting" items like old net curtains, string, pieces of wood....don't let friends and neighbours throw anything away that could be useful. Make a compost bay out of old pallets.
But most of all....GO AT YOUR OWN PACE.... and enjoy the experience.
Good luck and have a great growing year
