A postage stamp kitchen garden is a small garden that puts the fresh ingredients that good cooks need at their fingertips when they need them. Kitchen gardens are very special places designed by, and for, people who love to cook and who are constantly looking for dishes that let them express their personalities.
This is Ellen in her kitchen garden. She has such a green thumb that she produces more than she can use, and her friends benefit from her generosity.
When you are short on both time and garden space. the postage stamp kitchen garden solves both of these problems because it (1) produces tremendous amounts of vegetables in a small space using intensive techniques; (2) requires much less weeding, watering, and effort; (3) maintains ecological balance using intensive organic method that create a vigorous, healthy vegetable garden; (4) often combines in-ground gardens with containers.
These kitchen gardens are highly productive small gardens especially designed by you and good cooks everywhere who want their gardens to reflect the menus they serve and who aren’t willing to settle for less than the best.
Plan your kitchen garden the same way you would any intensive bed. So why not use themed beds, beds that allow you to grow what you cook the most. Included here are Container Gardens, The Gourmet Salad Garden, The Italian Inspired Garden, The Asian Garden, The Mexican Garden, The French Garden, and The Diabetic/Heart Healthy Garden. These are just a few to get you started (see the navigation bar and select your choice).
I’ve listed ethnic seeds used in each theme garden.
