Garden: Grow veggies in 2-4 square feet



For anyone that loves fresh veggies but is short on space or maybe you just doesn't want the upkeep...this might be just your ticket for a mini garden this summer.  

TOMATO
In a sunny 2-foot square bed, tuck a single plant. Prolific varieties include 'Sun Gold', a cherry type, or 'Early Girl', a medium slicer. 

+ BASIL
In a 3-foot square bed, grow three basils and a tomato plant.  Perfect for making pesto and for pairing with tomatoes and mozzarella in summer salads.

+ CHIVES & CUKES
In a 4-foot square bed, add a row of chives beyond the basil, then plant a single cucumber vine.

Great idea!! And it's pretty too.

You'd think I could figure this out fairly easy but, I am not sure I want to stop seeing my local folks at my regular farmer's market.
I may have to leave it to the pros.

What a great idea! Home grown vegetables always taste so much nicer!

By the way Tina, I've given your blog an award!
