Hi, I'm new here and have searched to find an answer to my question but have not seen a post with an answer so I apologize if this is something that has already been asked before. 

I'm preparing for some fall crops. We're in the process of setting up our beds and next on the list is to build the grid. I plan to have broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage in the garden. I know these will take up two grid spaces (24"). Do these just grow around the grid, or do I need to alter the grid to give these more space to grow?

Thanks! Looking forward to learning so much from this group!

I've grown full beds of broc's with a grid and I had one plant per one sq. ft.  The plants can bump up to one another but it was fine and there were no problems.  Be sure to use something like tulle to cover it or the moths will destroy them.  If you buy starter plants the eggs could already be on them.  I've used bT for that, and it works great. 
I plan to grow them again this year, so delicious to have your own.

Thanks for the tip Llama Momma! I'll keep that in mind! This is really helpful as I continue to plan out where each plant will go.
