Not every homesteader has a lot of wide, open space in which to grow food, and if you’re someone who has a limited amount of garden space, then obviously you want to make the very most out of your available ground.A huge factor in your success will be picking which veggies grow best in smaller spaces.
“Every year, seed catalogs feature an expanding selection of vegetables, including many that are chosen specifically for their compact nature,” says Gardener’s Supply Co. “While many gardeners value productivity and flavor, small-space gardeners also look for plants that have ornamental qualities and longevity.”
“Don’t let limited outdoor space prevent you from trying out your green thumb. From tasty fruits and veggies to flowering plants, trees and shrubs, container gardening is the trick to growing it all in less space than you may think.”
“Whereas a conventionally-grown garden might include the use of chemical fertilizers and potentially toxic insecticides to protect the crop, an organic gardener will forgo the chemicals and feed the soil with natural fertilizers and insect barriers,” he says. “The same goes for weed control.”
