grid-auto-flow …

using column will push the 2 added Recipes into another column.
using row the 2 added Recipes appear at the bottom of the page.


In this exercise when we use the property grid-auto-flow: column; this property reorganize container to fit in the remain space.
The first and second column has a margin on the left and right side that you can see only using inspection.
But the third one that was fit on the right side don’t has this margin.
How to solve this issue?

To solve this I had to make some changes:


main {
display: grid;
grid-template-columns: 250px 250px;


main {
display: grid;
grid-template-columns: repeat(auto, 250px);

When I use grid-auto-flow: column; , not just the newly added extra elements filled the columns from top to bottom, but all the contents did.
So it works on not just implicit elements?
