If you want to grow all of the food you need for your family but you really do not have enough space even with growing up and growing intensively, concentrate on high value crops that cost more to buy at the market and produce a lot of food per plant. An example would be a tomato plant vs a beet or onion. Succession planting should be utilized so every space has something growing at all times. Supplement your food at a Farmers Market or Organic Market for less expensive food like onions and squash. This can save you money and time and space.

I am an RN with over 50 years of experience. I still work 3 12 hour shifts a week at a busy hospital. I owe my good health and longevity to good genes and a healthy lifestyle. My Dad was a chef and I very early learned to cook healthy primarily vegetarian foods. I love to garden and grow my own healthy food. Digging in the dirt is both healthful and therapeutic. Good for us and the environment. I hope you enjoy visiting this site and find the information interesting and helpful.
