A favourite up side of a small patch is some veggies are so beautiful to watch growing that I almost forget they are food and enjoy having them where I can see them best.

I live in a park with relocatable homes. Naturally the space around the houses is at a minimum but I replaced the grass at the back with a raised garden. I try growing as much as I can vertically to maximise space. Garden arches are great for this! In September, when I plant my snake beans, I can get a good crop of lettuce between the sides of the arch before the beans block out to much sun.

My nana taught me to throw old bed sheets over plants to protect on hot days. I usually spray them first. Cheap and it works!
