A food garden can be any size. It can be as big as your back yard or a massive green house, or it can be as small as a box on your balcony.

Best place for a food garden: Most vegetables like sun, but you must know which vegetables like sun and which seasons your food likes to be planted in.

I chose to grow baby celery. Celery is my favourite vegetable. Baby celery looks like parsley and coriander, but has a strong celery taste. You can grow it all year, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving 🙂

I built a little green house, using a wooden box, a planter, some pipe and mesh fabric. I put potting soil into the planter and planted my seeds. Once they grew, I added some mulch to keep the soil moist for longer.

I didn’t really need any tools for my little green house, apart from my hands, and a spray bottle to water my celery every day.

ANYONE can have a food garden, no matter how big or small your space is. You don’t even need a lot of money. You can get seedlings or seeds for free if you ask someone nicely.
