Space vs Need
As a extension master gardener and MAEscapes past board chair I have concentrated my efforts on conservation, wildlife habitat and the use of native plants. With little space left for vegetable gardens I try to plant only what I think we can consume and enjoy. We have a collapsible greenhouse that goes up about this time each year to give things a head start. I've built several inexpensive raised beds for herbs and small size veggies and have tried straw bale gardening the last two years with good success for squash and watermellon. Some plants go in large containers and we have several types of fruit growing. Glad to be a part of this group.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
