Simple, smart and easy…growing a SMALL vegetable garden
Many people grow large vegetable gardens. I grow a small one that fits in five wash tubs. It’s just the right size for two of us, since one of us doesn’t like tomatoes. This is a garden that a Flea Market gardener would love….I do!
For a good mix, I used one bag of each kind of soil at Home Depot just like is recommended in Square Foot Gardening. The salesman there thought I was nuts, I think. I fertilize and watch for worms….didn’t find one, the healthiest I’ve ever seen, until the end of the season.
Tractor Man doesn’t like tomatoes. Most of the peppers I popped into a Zip-loc bag and froze. I then would add them to soups, spaghetti sauce and casseroles.
Some of the tomatoes, I dried and packed in jars of olive oil. See my recipe here. ~~ Sue
