VEGETABLE GARDENING – How small as can you go?


Smallest individual veggie garden?

Now I have seen everything.
A canvas shoe holder in which to plant vegetables (the canvas retains moisture to the benefit of the plant). What a great idea. Hang the shoe holder on the side of the house where the plants will get the most sun. It would be best to affix a thin structure behind the organiser to keep it away from the wall.

Plant vine tomatoes in a canvas bag

Alternatively, you may grow tomatoes in a canvas bag.

Garden Stakes
By far the tiniest space-saving option is to plant vine vegetables.
As soon as the plant reaches sufficient height, attach the vine to a stake (as few/many as your garden or balcony will allow).

Suggested vegetables:

  • pole beans,
  • vine cucumbers
  • vine tomatoes
  • vine squash

Trellise

Trellises & Pergolas
Another way to contain vegetable plants in a small space is to incorporate trellises and pergolas into your vegetable garden design plan.

No matter what your choice – begin today.
Grow your own vegetables. If for no other reason than for your health’s sake.

And remember – buy living seed, seed uncontaminated by insecticides and pesticides. Avoid genetically modified seed, too. It is an absolute no-no.
