My smallest vegetable garden ever

October 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

The smallest vegetable garden I ever owned was in Shoreditch, east London, on the Geffrye Estate.

It measured about 4 x 4m but was amazingly productive. I planned the spacings carefully and planted mostly from plug (not the carrots of course), as seeds may not have been able to compete with adjacent plants.

From front to back:

Interplanted rows of carrots and chervil

A Zapallo Plomo pumpkin

Interplanted row of leefs and tarragon

Sweetcorn with flat leaf parsley at the base (left hand side)

Beetroot and peas/sweet peas (right hand side)


And on the other side of the garden more sweetcorn, lettuce, tomatoes and runner beans:


When you live in central London this is an oasis 🙂


Here are a few harvest pics .. anyone else have a habit of eating all the veg before it gets chance to be photographed??
