Description: Medium Kitchen Garden category, 35 square feet. The perimeters of my kitchen area were made interesting by adding vegetables, herbs, and flowers around in containers in a whimsical theme, thereby creating a space that was both edible and beautiful. Combinations of recycled containers Washing machine tubs and bucket gardening were placed at least 12 inches apart so that the plants will be less scorched. Recycled PVC guttering was also hung along the perimeter fence, all of these were filled with a mix of planting soil, compost material, broken coconut husks, sharp sand, and cow manure. Additionally, healthy plants with the aid of the compost from scraps from Vegetables and fruit peels along with lawn cuttings and plant leaves.
