How does a garden grow?

I'd like to work on my garden and lawn. I know nothing about gardening and lawn care. What are some good online resources?

In the 10 years that I've lived in my house I have ignored the lawn and garden,except for an occasional mow. This year, I'd like to start making things look a little better.
I am in the Northeast (Maine) and know nothing - NOTHING about gardening and lawn care. There are a few perennials left over from the previous owner - peonies, some p*ssed-off looking roses, shrubbery, and a grape arbor (which has overgrown to the point that it's taken up half the yard).
I'd also like to do window boxes, but wonder if that might be a bit overambitious for my first time out of the gate.
I'd like to keep things as organic as possible. And I understand that a beautiful garden doesn't happen immediately, so could really use some direction with long term planning.
