Tiny House Tiny Garden: Maximizing space through design

As I make my way to a Tiny Life, I have recently started a garden to grow my own vegetables. To be honest I rather suck at it but Things are growing and I have been able to make about a metric ton of pesto so far. Today I found these really neat ideas for how to maximize space and grow food also.

  1. "I rather suck at it but things are growing"
    If things are growing then there is no sucking!!!

  2. I was just thinkin how great it would be to have a tiny house (moveable kind on wheels) with some kind of collapsible hydroponic gardening system that could fold up and go with the tiny house… of course, I only plan on moving it occasionally. But it would be great to bring my "garden space" with me…

    Funny how your post came the same day I had this thought 🙂

  3. My wife and I recently went to the "smart and green" house at Chicago's Museaum of Science and Industry. They had a miniture vertical garden very similar to this, with angled planters in a wooden frame. It was a very impressive idea, and I'm glad to see someone else do it to! I wonder how well it would work with root vegatables such as onions and potatos…

  4. I love what you did with the siding planters. I’ve never seen anything like that before. I’m not much of a gardener, but if you don’t mind, I might copy that idea from you. I do love freshly grown herbs, fruits, etc…maybe I could actually be successful with this little siding micro garden.

  5. What are these made of? Rain gutters or what? Thanks!

  6. I’m just learning about hydroponic gardening before we fully delve into it. In the above scenarios, how do you keep the nutrients constant? Are water pumps in use? Thanks! 🙂

    • I would just use a foliar spray like compost tea or worm casting tea. I also would change out the soil every 1-2 years.
