When we first bought this house 16 yrs ago, Rob rototilled me a vegetable garden.
I swear it was big enough to feed a small village. I was overwhelmed. Every summer it would be waist deep in weeds by the end of June.
I was always overwhelmed, 5 summers and 3 babies later enough, I planted grass.
This year I asked for a small garden. Three kids are old enough to be helpful.
So, we have started slow.
20×15. And using landscape fabric to minimize the weeding.
Just enough to can a bit of salsa, have fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers.
I hope to add watermelon and cucumbers today.
Next year it can be but bigger, but only if it stays under control this year!
