An Organic Vegetable Garden built on a tabletop!
We have set-up several small raised beds for our vegetables, herbs and spices growing all these while. However; it had never be sufficient for my gardening experiments so far.
In mid-spring this year, the man in my house suddenly constructed a tabletop garden bed for me. He said this is a compensation for my last lost spring tulips bulbs.
I was so excited about it, because I had a chance to do my own garden design on a table top. Imagine... if you yet to have a chance to design a big garden; a tabletop is good enough to exercise your creativities and fantasies. So I started to layout my favourite list of vegetables right away.
There are really so much benefits for growing organic vegetables on a table top than planting them on the ground level...
How many types of vegetable plants can be planted on this tabletop is depends on the size of the table. Most of the vegetables are suitable for this table top bed.
I have planted two rows of different types of tomato plants (ten each); radishes; garlics; shallots; beets; carrots; and one thyme herb plant was grown in between of the tomato rows. Cabbage; 2 zucchini plants; 3 bell peppers; and 2 Brussels Sprouts plants were sitting on the third row.
I love to watch the white cabbage butterflies flying about and laying her mini green eggs on my Brussels Sprouts and the cabbage everyday. Once I discovered her eggs in the heart of the cabbages; I would pour rain water over the head of the plant; and the eggs would fell down together with the water. Then I wiped them away. It was challenging!
The end of the season I had harvested 3500 grams of organic tomatoes; some white radishes; some cloves of garlic; 2 clamps of shallots; 8 green beets; 1 cabbage, 2 carrots; and 6 summer squashes.
The Brussels Sprouts are only for experiment. If you really need to have them for consumption; you have to either grow them in a greenhouse; or protect them fully.
Build a worry free and no till organic vegetable garden grow bed; for your love ones and make every seniors dream come true?
