Gardening in Small Spaces

Mostly raised beds, growing from seed, sustainability, and homesteading, farm to table.

Gardening – Seed Starting, Growing, Indoor & Outdoor

I tried to garden a few years back.  I grew up with parents that lived not too far from Baltimore City, and they had a beautiful 1/3-acre garden.  We had tomatoescoming out of our ears and my mother would spend her summer days canning every kind of pickle you can imagine.

I personally thought well, if they did it, I can do it.  So I tried.  We bought a fancy tiller and chose a spot and got to work.  I failed miserably.  I became bored of it.  Heck, I didn’t even water it, why did I think it would grow?

Since bringing the horses onto our small property, I decided to revisit the idea of gardening.  Wow, what a difference.  I actually paid attention to what I was doing and you know what?  It’s not hard to garden at all!  I start most everything from seed.

I’m lazy and love efficiency so the better things run themselves, the least bit of work I have to do.  I still work hard, don’t get me wrong, but whereever I can cut corners, I do.  These are my articles and first hand accounts of gardening in small spaces and utilizing what I have to create farm to table meals.  It has been a wonderful experience.  There is something very fulfilling about creating and growing your own food.

Scroll down fro the articles/blog posts, I will keep some recomendations here for some basic gardening essentials.
