I have recently run into a problem that had been perplexing me for the past month. I have been running short on additional space for annual vegetables and fruits. Because of the rotation I will not have as much room for tomatoes this year and I want to have more broccoli and cauliflower as well as trying some new varieties of watermelon and cantaloupe.
I have a plan.
I am going to build three new vegetable plots, create a few raised beds, build some planter boxes and perhaps rent space in a community garden. This sounds simple but the result of this plan is that I now have to rip out a few large sections of my yard.
I will be exchanging lawn for vegetables.
This is the entire point of edible landscaping and so the time and effort will be worth it. I will expound on each of my little projects in detail on further blog posts.
In the mean time start looking in your yard for spaces that could be converted!!
