It can be small or large, formal or informal, or even be a collection of pots and tubs.  The sky is the limit, and everyone can enjoy some fresh herbs or a few fresh salad leaves in the summer if they want to.

My own kitchen garden started with 12 raised beds and a few boxes.  It has now extended to include a 20 'x 40' polytunnel, and this summer a quarter acre plot which is currently under cultivation, with the aid of my garden tool of the year the 'Adze'.
