Growing in small spaces

These videos show you how I grew a large amount of food in just two 1m x 1m plots.  Follow my Summer 2021 gardening adventure including tomatoes, pumpkins, zucchini, spaghetti and squash.

This space is has 11 tomatoes and 9 pumpkins/spaghetti squash and 3 zucchini. Now, to be honest, the pumpkins were not intentional and self seeded, but I have elected to leave them in to demonstrate what you can grow in a small space.

The two ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL CAVEATS to growing this densely are "plant support" and "fertilising".
If you do not support your plants they will not receive adequate sun light.
If you do not fertilise regularly then they will not receive enough food. These plants also received a full tray of vermicast before planting so they are growing in very nutritious soil.
And of course water, water, water!
I also prune off lower leaves to make space and ensure sun light is getting down to smaller plants.
