Each "plot" is 2'x2'. The grey is the pathways.
I'm sure if I moved things around I could squeeze in a few more plots, but this way I know that I can easily reach in to do any weeding. Besides I can also sneak in a few more vegetables in between the flowers and shrubs. Some things I will keep the same as last year, but others I will definitely change. I doubt I'll be growing broccoli or the "fancy" lettuce or as many cherry tomatoes. I am trying to keep in mind the "dirty dozen" fruits and veggies. These are the ones that benefit most from being purchased organically to help reduce our exposure to chemicals up to 80%. I look forward to trying out a few vegetables I haven't grown before; cauliflower for sure (we use up to 3 heads a week these days).
Here's my hope for the front garden so far: kale, red pepper, sorrel, zucchini, cucumber, cauliflower, butter lettuce, romaine lettuce, garlic, potatoes, snow peas, carrots, beets and some tomatoes.
