We're planning a veggie garden. We want to grow:
- Zucchini (we're doing Chinese zucchini and are hoping to have it grow up lattice)
- Chinese cucumber
- a variety of herbs - mint, basil, rosemary, parsley
I'd also love to do leek, sweet potatoes, capsicum, chilli, mushrooms, spinach...
We'd love to make the garden as easy as possible (the kids working on it have special needs) but we really want to make it useable as well - we want our veggies to actually grow so we can eat them! We have some time each week to work on it.
Does anyone having any advice? Is it true some of these veggies, like potatoes, can grow more by planting the vegetable itself? (Some websites say the potatoes can make then soil toxic?) Are there any things that shouldn't be grown together?
I don't have a lot of space, but want to use the space I do have well.
Thanks in advance for any advice you have!
