Ever ***sigh*** with envy while watching the Food Network stars
Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten or Giada DeLaurentis selecting fresh herbs or veggies from just outside the kitchen door ?
I often sighed with envy, too---
Then I discovered a wonderful small garden growing guide written by a retired engineer named Mel Bartholomew:
"The All New Square Foot Gardening"...
This planting method gives any beginner all they need to grow gourmet produce ! No more being discouraged by small spaces, poor soil or single row gardening traditionalists!!!!
Whether you plant in square foot sections or go vertical, Take a peek at how beautiful veggie plants can be...
The planning and set up is simple…
Take a look at what a beginner can do, in a very small space----
Following basic instructions, now you can step outside your kitchen door and choose fresh chives, parsley, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and more to use in gourmet recipes ---- so much more delicious with homegrown plants!
Using just a few basic tools and supplies most homeowners already own …
no heavy tilling...no heavy digging...
no adding fertilizers...
no "amending" soil...
no heavy tools …
Utilizing small spaces, raised beds or vertical planting techniques, you too will be a "green" gourmet gardener.
Worried about how to assemble
(build is too strong a term for this task!)
your growing boxes, planting beds or tower?
Simple instructions are available - even very simple "no tool required kits", as well.
There are many simple and economical ways to set up your own growing spaces.
How can these methods work?
Square Foot Gardening uses a special planting mix first developed back in the 1970's.
The Tower Garden® aeroponic kit was developed in 2005 by Tim Blank of Tower Garden, LLC.
Both Square Foot Gardening and the Tower Garden®growing techniques...
The growing boxes you see in the photos were home made (I had help) and also some were assembled from a very simple kit purchased from Home Depot.
The simple symmetry of a kitchen garden is very artistic. Since "close to home" placement of raised beds is strongly recommended, beauty is key.
The Tower Garden® shown to the right was assembled by little old me!
Raised beds have a long history ....and through the centuries were designed to be bountiful, useful and beautiful.
The Tower Garden® innovation was based on ideas displayed at Disney's Epcot agricultural center!
This is "organic" growing at its simplest and best !
