Small Space Edible Gardening: Easy Ways To Grow Extra Food
Create A Front Yard Farmer’s Market
Here are the easiest, cheapest, and quickest ways to grow hundreds of dollars of veggies and fruits with small space edible gardening.
These ideas will bring life and interest to your existing flowerbed and garden.
Small scale growing of greens, beans, tomatoes, etc. is a possibility.
I wonder about the economics of it in terms of labor and time, but growing your own fruit and veggies is so cheap!
Sure, you can go to the market and buy a ton of produce, but would you know how it was grown?
I am talking about “organic” and home grown fruit and veggies.
All you will need is a hand spade and fork, peat moss (for water retention), a bag of sand, seeds, plants, and a watering can.
Add seedlings or sow seeds between patio stone crevices and plant beans against a wall to run on a trellis.
You can also plant in large stone containers, terracotta, window boxes, wall planters, hanging baskets, strawberry pots, and whiskey barrels.
It is not just what you grow in, but what you grow that makes the difference.
Some people like herbs, some like fruit, I like both.
Yes, you can grow fruit in a small space too.
I prefer the raised-bed or small kitchen gardening system.
It is neat and easy to tend.
You can pack a lot of lettuce, onions, carrots, and tomatoes in a 4×4 space.
The most important asset of your garden is preparing infertile soil because the most important part of growing organic veggies is the soil.
Here is a planting schedule for all of you “Equinox 101” (after the last frost) gardeners:
- After April 15, plant all roots, all salad greens, seeds of all cabbage family, onions, garlic and peas.
- After May 1, plant all beans and corn.
- After May 15, plant all vines, cucumbers, and squash.
- After June 1, transplant tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant.
Now, for radical gardeners like me, I plant all of the above before the last day of April, except tomatoes.
I set them out immediately after the last frost, which is usually by the end of April.
To save more money, most dollar stores sell seed packets 5/$1.00; therefore, you don’t need to spend a lot to grow a lot!
