Re: How Much Space Do You Need For a Vegetable Garden?

I have tucked my vegetables in what used to be flower beds and in containers on the deck. We stapled the tomatoe cages to the deck rails to keep them from blowing over and this year I planted some cucumbers in deep window boxes. Watering is essential in the early morning and evenings as I live in Southern Michigan. In varying containers I planted: beets, carrots, pole beans, tomatoes, lettuces and zucchini. We have potatoes, butternut squash, corn, watermelon, pie pumpkins, more tomatoes and beans as well as cucumbers in patches of sunlight.
