5 Kitchen Garden Design Ideas to Organize Your Life


Gardening is a great way to get outside and enjoy nature. But it can also be a great way to organize your life. Gardening can help you cut down on waste, save money, and connect with the world around you. With just a little bit of time and effort in your own kitchen garden, you can easily organize your life while enjoying delicious produce every week! Here are five tips to help get started:

Don’t overplant your kitchen garden.

Another thing to keep in mind when designing your kitchen garden is the amount of space you have. Make sure that you have enough room for all your plants and that you don’t overcrowd them. For example, if you’re planting herbs in pots on a patio or balcony, try not to fill up the entire area with plants—leave some empty space for people to walk through. Or if there will be other things growing nearby, like vines or small fruit trees, make sure there is enough room between them and the herbs so they don’t compete with each other for sunlight and space.

You also want to make sure not too many different types of plants are planted together; this can cause problems with pests and diseases spreading from one type over another type because they’re too close together (as well as making it harder for humans to harvest what they need). A good rule-of-thumb is: no more than three different varieties per square foot (or two square feet total). Also remember that certain vegetables take longer than others—so don’t plant everything at once!

Focus on vegetables that grow easily.

If you’re just getting started with growing your own food, it’s important to choose vegetables that are easy to grow and easy to prepare. This will help keep frustration down and make the whole process more enjoyable. If possible, pick vegetables that can be eaten raw in salads or as snacks. Here is a list of some easy-to-grow plants:

  • Broccoli – Broccoli is one of the most popular ingredients in green smoothies and juices because it has so many benefits for your health. It also tastes delicious when cooked with other ingredients!
  • Cauliflower – A great alternative from broccoli if you want something milder tasting but still healthy! Cauliflower also goes well in soups or stews after being boiled first before adding it into other foods like rice dishes (like paella).
  • Chilli Peppers – These are delicious addition when grilled up over a fire outdoors during camping trips; they add spice without being too hot (unless you don’t like spicy foods). They’re also good garnishes on tacos too!

Organize your kitchen garden into quadrants.

To make it easier to keep track of what you have planted, I recommend using a grid system. You can do this by drawing out a grid on paper or on the back of your garden map. Then, write down each type of vegetable or herb in one of four quadrants (left, right, top and bottom). This allows you to see at a glance which plants are ripe for eating and which ones still need time before they will be ready.

Plant seasonal produce in your kitchen garden.

One of the best ways to use your kitchen garden is to plant seasonal produce. If you’re looking at a seed packet, think about what’s in season and what will be coming up soon. You can save money by planting these foods, and they’ll be easier on your body as well. Your body isn’t used to eating tomatoes in December or strawberries in February, so it’s better for everyone if you eat foods that are grown locally during their natural growing seasons. Some examples of seasonal produce include:

  • Spring: Asparagus, baby greens (arugula & spinach), beans (snap & shell), carrots (baby & full size), lettuce mix, peas (sugar snap & snow)
  • Summer: Tomatoes (cherry & regular), cukes/cucumbers

Use color coding in your kitchen garden for easy organization and management.

  • Color-coding is a great way to keep track of what you planted, when it should be harvested, and how much attention it needs from you. For example:
  • Plant tomatoes in red pots so that they stand out as the first harvest of the season.
  • Harvest peppers with yellow tags so that you know which ones need harvesting next.
  • Prune peas with green tags so that they’re easy to spot amongst all those leafy plants (and no one will accidentally pick them).

Gardening can be a great way to increase your connection with food and the world around you.
