A kitchen garden is an outdoor garden that is conveniently located as close to the kitchen as possible, so that it’s easy for you to grab what you need from it to prepare your meals. It’s usually smaller than a regular vegetable garden, but not always.

A regular vegetable garden is more for harvesting large amounts of vegetables in the future for preserving. A kitchen garden is for smaller amounts and is more for using in the present and using things while the produce is fresh.

Since a regular garden is for bigger production, vegetables are often lined up in rows, whereas a kitchen garden is more aesthetically pleasing and adds beauty to your home and yard.

Kitchen gardens, also called Potager gardens(a French term) were invented in France and are made up of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers to bring beauty and functionality to a space. When one type of plant is done producing, it is replaced with a different crop.

Raised beds are often preferred because of the warmer soil temperatures in them, easier on your body to tend to, and you can fill them up with good quality soil.

You can grow anything you like in your kitchen garden but it’s a great idea to choose crops that you can use sooner rather than at the end of summer. The main idea is to have early producing crops that you can use fresh. You also don’t want to plant things that spread out and take a lot of space, such as pumpkins.

Delicious fruits to add to a kitchen garden could be strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, and depending on your location, smaller dwarf fruit trees. You don’t want to grow big fruit trees that will cast shade over your kitchen garden.
