Small Space Gardening–End of Summer Photos

This is a long overdue end-of-summer photo-post showing the transformation of my small space garden areas including my new side yard beds. I’m finally getting these photos together in the month of February following the growing season that ended months ago here in Central Illinois. Ironically enough, we had a blizzard last night, and everything is covered in about seven inches of snow. I guess this record-setting, very long, hellashusly (no help from spellcheck on that one) snowy winter has me dreaming of my summer garden! So here are my results.

(For details on the sizes of the planting areas, what was planted and how crops were rotated, refer to my post, “Small Space Gardening–Utilize Your Sideyard”. You’ll be surprised at how small some of these spaces are.)

The following three photos are of the planting bed near my front door that has both flowers and vegetables in it. Spring, early summer and late summer. From now on, I will always plant veggies in this flower bed!

Front and center is a volunteer mini pumpkin plant that I moved into my front flower bed from my back yard vegetable garden.

And here are some pictures just for fun of plants that did well.

Here you can see my herb garden area before the dill seed took over!

Again, most of the planting beds pictured in this post are tiny. My hope is that those of you who wish to grow flowers and vegetables, but have limited planting space will see that it’s possible, and will give it a try.
