If you are a food lover, then you do care about where it comes from. In most modern cities, there isn’t much space to do so much. However, you can set up small wooden boxes in which you can plant whatever you want, ranging from tomatoes, potatoes and onions.
Others have formed new techniques of planting vegetables like kales in gunny bags filled with a mixture of soil and fertilizer. The advantage of the gunny bags is that they occupy space vertically. This means the surface area occupied on the floor is quite minimal.
Another way in which you can utilize your small space and have a great gardening experience is dividing the land into strips. This ensures you can easily walk through the areas and sprinkle water or manure. This also ensures you do not use too much water in your small garden.
Most kitchen gardens only allow you to plant simple vegetables like tomatoes, onions, and coriander. Always remember that the space is small and each plant needs to have enough nutrients. Do not plant too many vegetables on a small space, otherwise the plants will not have enough and stunted growth may be exhibited.
Onions, kale or carrots are ideal for the kitchen garden because you can view the plants from above, as they do not grow so tall. You should be on the lookout for weeds that need pruning, spots that may mean diseases and insects that may cause harm to your young plants. Having a small kitchen garden means your yield is low. For this reason, ensure you reap what you sow — all of it. Weeds need constant pruning for you to harvest all that you planted.
Do you spend much time in the kitchen? If the answer is yes, then having potted plants on your window will serve as a form of décor. However, remember that these plants cannot grow to maturity in a pot. Even plants need their freedom. When the time is right, carefully transfer them to the garden, where they can get more nutrients.
