I've been given the go ahead to create a little veg patch. Woo! By little, we're talking 1m x 2m or thereabouts. Because of the size, I'm thinking about "square foot gardening" http://www.gardenorganic.org.uk/schools_organic_network/leaflets/SquareFootGardening.pdf
The trouble is trying to work out what to grow in each section, as I don't know what grows in which seasons, different harvest times, and I know sometimes plants inhibit each other??
Also, a lot of traditional allotment plants are beans and sweetcorn - not primal! So any suggestions / tips would be appreciated!
So far, I'm listing the veggies I enjoy eating!
- broccoli (cut and come again variety; the plant itself is very large)
- carrot? (relatively cheap in shops; prone to pests?)
- salad leaves (I grow these indoors fairly easily; is it worth wasting outdoor space?)
- pak choi (grow to baby-size indoors as well)
- squash (too big for sq.ft. garden??) - butternut, acorn
- various herbs
The root veg seem fairly carb heavy and wintery... what do people grow for summer??
