How large should my gar­den be?

Maryland Independent - - Community -

A great size for a be­gin­ner’s gar­den is 10x18 feet, which can eas­ily feed a fam­ily of four to six. How­ever, your gar­den should re­flect the size of your fam­ily, avail­abil­ity of space, amount of time you can spend tend­ing to it and the amount of work you’re will­ing to do.

It’s im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that too large a gar­den can eas­ily over­whelm you and be­come a dis­cour­ag­ing chore in­stead of an en­joy­able pas­time. Keep it man­age­able. You’ll be amazed at the amount of de­li­cious food you can grow in any spaceeven on a pa­tio or bal­cony. No space is too small!
