Forget about a beautiful garden if you don’t want to invite pillage troubles over. In times of crises, the uglier a garden is, the less are the chances of detection. If you can hide your precious food source among weeds and inedible bushes, the better.

Growing plant barriers around your secret food source would be ideal to deter anyone from foraging. Thorn bushes should be great plants to start with. An orderly garden will also call other’s attention. So it’s best to plant food plants in random and chaos.

It would be great to group plants like the three sisters in corn, squash, and beans. It will both avoid detection and each plant will benefit from each other.
