I live in a townhouse in a suburb of Washington, DC. I have a very small yard, with two raised garden beds in my backyard. They are each about 3×9ish feet, for a total of about 56 square feet of veggie growing space. I also have several containers of various sorts.
I’ve grown tomatoes in containers before, but 2008 was my first in-ground veggie garden. I garden intensively, inspired by the square foot gardening method, but not constrained by it.
My beds started with dirt I got from my cousin, which originated in his compost pile and his horse paddock. i supplemented that with purchased compost and organic soil. I work hard to build the soil by trench composting, mulching and other natural, non-synthetic amendments.
An outdoor organic garden located in Germantown, Maryland, United States, Katxena's Tiny Farm garden currently contains 37 plants.This is a Square Foot garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 7. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Full Sun light.
