smaller is better?

Post by seagullplayer on Tue May 12, 2009 3:20 am

Family was over for Mother’s Day and my BIL was saying he had yet to get any of his tomatos in the ground, too muddy.

He was admiring my plants, it has been pretty wet for us too, but I have been able to beat him in the garden because mine is small. I now see one big advantage to a raised garden that is just wide enough for two rows, being able to work in it when it is wet.

I have been thinking about going back to a larger traditional garden next year, but now I am rethinking it. I think I will just add small garden patches as needed. Might even hoop house one next year…

Hey, if it works for you it's great. Last year I tried raised beds, but the plants didn't do very well. Not sure what I did wrong. This year I've gone back to the old fashioned row garden. I'm familiar with it. The only thing I'm doing different this year is trying the 3 sisters approach with my corn, beans and squash.
