Everyone knows that being prepared requires having your own food source, both fresh and stored. Growing a nutritious garden in a very small space is an art and a science that every prepper should know how to do. Follow these simple steps and you will have abundant food for your entire family from less than 10 square feet.

GO DEEP: SQUARE-FOOT GARDENING
The most important factor in an in-ground garden is root depth. The deeper your roots are the closer you can put plants together, because they are able to seek nutrients downward instead of outward. This simple method of creating greater root depth is called double-digging and quite simply that’s what it is. Dig your dirt twice as deep as you normally would (at least 3 feet). When you return the dirt to its hole make sure it stays fluffy not compacted and never step or put your body weight on that patch of dirt. Deep roots want fluffy dirt. You can now plant your vegetables much closer together and they will grow fantastically!
Vertical gardening is an amazing way to get maximum production from the smallest spaces. Vertical gardening uses the roots for nutrition and water but walls, fences, trellises, roofs, windows and other vertical spaces as the growing space. This achieves maximum production from the smallest possible space.
Follow these simple steps to take full advantage of your small–space garden.
- Choose your garden location well, with vertical gardening in mind. Make sure you have a lots of vertical space above your ground or pot-based garden.
- Choose vining varieties when possible. Peas, beans, cucumbers, squash, vining spinach (Malabar), melons, etc.
- Make climbing trellises with string or wood as high as possible.
Vertical gardening is an art and science in itself and any serious small-space gardener should take the time to study it.
