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??
