Oh yes it will…

This is not a planting map. This is just an illustration showing that you can fit all of these plants into one wee kitchen garden. The plan is to plant in rounds with tall things in the middle and shorter things towards the edges. Maybe I’ll even introduce verticality by planting on mounds.

  1. Yes, I know. There’s already stuff growing there in rows; coreander (almost gone to seed), corn (cross your fingers), and lettuce (that I hope has been eaten before I get there ‘ere it has gone to seed as well).

  2. that’s not a problem tho. I think the problem with circular planting might be the weeding, Anything’s hard to weed if not in a straight line. Having said that one could solve the weeding with your beloved covercrop… or chemicals!

  4. Chemicals!? What the heck for? Snip the weeds with scissors to hold their place in the ground. Why ruin the ground with chemicals? I don’t recall chemicals being specified in any cookbooks.
