Recently, I planted some corn seeds in a small box that we put in behind the car port last year. We have a large patch, but I’m always looking for more areas to grow food and I felt this was wasted space and we wanted to put it to use. Here are some before and after pics.
The reality is, you don’t need a hundred-acre hobby farm to start growing food. It’s entirely possible in just a small area and sometimes less is more as we tend to use it more efficiently when space is at a premium.
🌱 Plant in pots to contain growth
🌱 Look for wasted space around the yard and plant there
🌱 Opt for clumping plants, rather than those that creep
🌱 Avoid root vegetables that require depth and width
🌱 Start with herbs – they’re pest-resistant and can be prolific even in a small space
Don’t let a lack of space keep you from making a start.
