Paths in the portager
I am an aspiring potager, and am designing some beds. My first yen was to do edible landscaping and just have veggies and flowers and ornamentals throughout the yard, that won't work what with all the critters - well it works for them but I get nothing to eat, lol!
I've been looking through this forum at all your beautiful potagers and have a question about the paths...
Most of the designs and pictures show very large paths - 3-4 feet wide. I'm trying to keep my paths very narrow as I have so much to plant and so little space. I just thought that most of you have more land than I and that was the reason - then in one thread someone said - "your paths are wide enough" and I got worried about my plans.
Can you all tell me why the paths are so wide, and what troubles narrower paths might lead to?
Thanks so much!
