Things To Consider
The tools you need depend on the size of your space. Smaller spaces need less tools.
By companion planting, you can grow more in the same space. And, by companion planting, you can reduce the need for fertilizers.
Choosing a fertilizer is an important step. Different vegetables need different nutrients. You can (sometimes) achieve this by companion planting. Otherwise, you will need to find the right fertilizer for you. If you plan to have animals, you might be able to use the waste as fertilizer. Food scraps make a good fertilizer as well.
Make sure you choose the seeds you need before the rush begins. If not, you may not be able to get the ones you want. Deciding on the variety of vegetable or fruit can be daunting. Then you have to choose if you want hybrid or heirloom.
Canning what you grow.
Never waste your efforts. Canning is a great way to have nutritious food all year round. Preserve everything from preserves to vegetables and even meats. It is also a great way to pre-make soups, stews and sauces.
Should You Choose To Raise Animals?
Before considering raising animals, check the ordinances in your area. Then decide if you want chickens, goats, alpacas, or any other animal. Of course, the amount of space you have will dictate which animals to choose.

Larger Space Garden
There is more flexibility with larger spaces. It is still a good idea to companion plant. By companion planting, you can have a greater harvest while needing less pest control.
