In early spring 2016 I started working on the second part of the garden – the small food forest area. The space I have available is not very lucrative. It’s facing north and is located next to a larger road and it only receives partial sun. In addition, the ground is full of stones and there are several larger trees in the area, creating shade. I don’t know if this will work, but I’m giving it a try.
To succeed in the vegetable garden, it can be wise to know a bit about which plants will thrive together and which once don’t. Some plants will grow less and produce less when planted next to specific plant families. If the same plants are placed next to beneficial plants, they will grow better and produce a larger crop.
