"Planting seeds in re-purposed rain gutters is a great way to grow more veggies in a small space. Rain gutters make the perfect container for growing shallow rooted veggies like salad greens and they can be easily mounted on vertical structures like fences. These gutters are full of arugula, mustard, and spinach. What would you plant in yours?" -@Urbanfarmstead, Instagram
If you plant the same vegetables in the same spot every year, disease can build up and be ready before your plants have much of a chance. Keep the element of surprise against your disease foes and try to plant your crops in different parts of the garden each year.
Place the garden near your kitchen. It will be easy to run out and pick a few things you need, and you can spy on the garden from your window. Picking tomatoes after you see them blush crimson is a perfect way to get them at their best.
Tired of forgetting what you planted where? Create these fun and whimsical garden markers out of rocks painted with acrylic paint. Spray with a clear coat of spray paint when finished before placing into the garden. - "diyncrafts"
