It is amazing what small changes can produce.
In our backyard we removed a small piece of grass....2' wide.....along the length of the fence. That small amount of grass will never be missed but oh what results that space has produced.
In that area we now have 15 tomato plants, 5 squash plants and 5 cucumber plants. The squash and cucumber will trellis up the fence and we have already started harvesting red, ripe tomatoes.
Take a look at your yard and use a piece of ground, no matter how small, for something productive.
