Hi all!!!

I Joined up yesterday. I am located in the treasure valley Idaho. I have been gardening for a few years here but this year I am going all out. Just built new raised beds and am going to plant today. With cover obviously. I Would like some insight if anyone has any. I have a u shaped raised bed the back half is against fence line on the south side of my garden. It will be shaded half, to most of the day for shorter plants. Normally I grow lettuce etc in this spot. However my husband got me a bunch of seeds I have never grown before. Examples being brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, collards, pak choi, and head lettuce. With this I am trying sqft gardening for the first time. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for planting these in sqft and their growth size and habits? I will be planting roughly 22 different varieties of plants, in a 47 sq ft shaded area. I know its a lot. I have several elderly family members and neighbors I share with. I am not counting my sunny all day areas in this. 

                                                                     Thanks Everyone!

HStan,
Sounds like it is going to be a great garden. Do you have the All New SFG book? I has the formula for the spacing.

I do not have the book I checked it out from the library which is not open with all the craziness going on. I have been taking the thinning amount and dividing it by 12 and then multiplying it by itself. That is how I figured them. I went ahead and planted them using that and hoping I remembered correctly. It was a lot of planting and my 3 yr old wanted to help so I have roughly 6sq ft more to plant. Very Happy

If you don't have access to the book right now, check out the on-line planting chart:

I use two different methods when the spacing is not in the charts.

If the packet says to thin to:
10-12" apart - then 1 per square foot
8 " apart - then 2 per square foot
6" apart - then 4 per square foot
4" apart - then 9 per square foot
3" apart - then 16 per square foot

or

12 divided by spacing squared
ie - 6" spacing on packet = 12/6 = 2 squared = 4 per square foot
ie - 4" spacing on packet = 12/4 = 3 squared = 9 per square foot
