You don’t have to have a massive amount of space to produce a good amount of fresh veg, and with as little as a 1 x 1 metre bed you can have a productive patch.
Obviously with that space, the sky is not the limit, and you want to avoid the big brutes like cabbages, pumpkins and zucchinis, but if you choose your vegetables wisely you can easily provide plenty of options for your table. Carrots, spring onions, some tomatoes, basil, kale, spinach, capsicum, radish, cucumbers growing up a support at the side of the bed, coriander, even some companion flowers will all work well in this space.
The thing to bear in mind is that it is not about planting and harvesting everything in one go together, time them to ensure that some things will be ready before others, then as you harvest, plant something else in the space left to keep the continuous harvesting rolling along.
In that space you can get about 25 – 30 plants, so in small courtyards or on a balcony you can still experience the great joy of growing and harvesting your own produce to enhance your dining experience.
Just a small review today, for a small space!
