Planning a Postage Stamp Garden

You don’t need lots of space to grow your own vegetables. With a little planning, a postage stamp garden can provide enough for seasonal meals with extra for canning and preserving.

General garden
General postage stamp garden. Plant and harvest peas before planting winter squash. Plant radishes at 2-week intervals. Intercrop radishes, leaf lettuce and green onions with larger plants, and harvest before they take over the space. 5 by 5-foot bed.
