Get Started Growing: 5 Easy Small Vegetable Garden Ideas To Try
If you’re thinking about starting a small vegetable garden but feel like a total newbie, here are some simple ideas to get you moving towards growing some vegetables on a small and manageable scale!
1) Go Vertical: Going vertical saves on space and is visually pleasing to the eye.

2) Square Foot Gardening: The idea behind square foot gardening is to plant a variety of plants in a small amount of space. You’ll have to put a little bit of money into constructing the raised beds and filling them with soil, but once you put in the work, you can get consistent organic vegetables! There is tons information out there about square foot gardening; here’s an example of one from All New Square Foot Gardening.
