We have at least a few determined readers who live in town, or have no yards, or live in apartments, have health issues and can't manage gardens, etc. I am going to repost today some ideas for gardening in small spaces. It takes just as much work to plant and grow ornamentals as it does food; both are pretty, but for the
work involved, why not get some produce out of the deal?
Below are several ideas that I have found while traipsing around the internet, some I have posted before and some I haven't. They are all great for inspiration. Happy Growing!
Container Gardening on Your Deck, Patio, or Balcony
Grow Strawberries, Or Any Other Similarly Sized Plant, In Recycled Guttering
Above is an illustration on how to grow potatoes in a bag; you start at the bottom, and fill with dirt as the plant grows.
However, I want to add a little information to this drawing; it looks like it has the seed potatoes planted whole. DO NOT plant whole seed potatoes. You need to cut them in cubes first, with one or two eyes per cube, then let them dry (cure) for two or three days. If you don't, most of them will rot before you get any food from them. Then plant them eye up, and back fill dirt as the stalk grows.
