I am gardening in the square foot method. My backyard is less than 16×20 feet and only about half of that is actually garden. With research and planning it is possible to grow many things in a very small space.
There are some things I would like to try for next year…
- Vermicomposting (composting with worms).
- A rain bucket?
- Growing potatoes in a garbage can.
- Planting earlier.
- Starting seedlings inside.
I am loving watching things grow. There are some plants that I did not know anything about until I started growing them. It has been really interesting learning natural ways to keep undesirable bugs away from the garden. It has been interesting learning about companion gardening. It has been interesting meeting other gardeners and learning from them. Thanks for visiting.
