Small mounds maximize the growing space. The bigger the plant the higher you place them on your little mounds, e.g. strawberries at the bottom, then lettuce, then tomatoes on top.
.......as for corn, you are probably out of luck in a small space. It is the smallest yield for the largest space crop, and you really need a block to pollinate properly. I will grow some on occasion, but this year I am growing a block of sorghum for the chickens, and maybe I can make a broom or something!!

Does anyone know how to make the holes in the sides of a plastic barrel if you are going to use it for a barrel garden? I've got four barrels -- not sure yet that I want to use them that way, but it's a possibility.
