A big garden is the opposite of “too greedy”. Really any garden is the opposite. You invest your time, your money, and other resources, and if you are lucky enough to get a good harvest, you end up giving a lot of it away…

I lived in Florida for about 10 years, and was never able to get much to grow. Too many aphids and other sap sucking, leaf eating, fruit munching critters to grow without pesticides.

I never tried raised beds while in Florida though… I’m a big believer in them now. You can grow so much more densely in a bed, then in the ground. And it would give you the opportunity for better soil…
