I have a 8x4 box and I'm doing: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, 2 kind of lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, spinach, and strawberries (those will be planted on pots). I know how much I can sew per square but I'm having doubts with my layout. Can you please share yours or help me with mine?

I'm also wondering which cucumbers and tomatoes I can do on the vine? Does it matter?


I'm such a total newbie. I thought I had read up on it but since I'm lurking here, I'm realizing I don't know anything lol

Here it is.

I was planning to put the box on the west fence side with the tomatoes and cucumbers on the fence. The west side has just a little shadow in very early morning. Other than that it's just sun.

i see few problems right off bat
do have any idea what you plan on put where the spinach and lettuce is when they harvested. as for rest you will also have fill space when cabbage,cauliflower,broccoli are ripe.
besides that i would put spinach and lettuce up front.
Also you will need to stagger plant the cabbage, so it does become ripe all at once
Plus you need to have strategy to deal with cabbage worms.
tall and trellis plant in back short plants up front.

Thank you so much for your input.

Hmm I was thinking about doing a second round of the same? Can I do that?

I need to look up "stagger planting", and I haven't thought about cabbage worms...

I will have three boxes this summer.
2x4; 2x6; 4x4

Check out the 2x6 here: http://www.gardeners.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Gardeners-Site/default/Page-KitchenGardenDesigner

My trellis will be behind the top row of my 2x6 and I'll have various flowers in front.

We are just two people slowly converting from flowers in our boxes to veggies so my gardens are a combination. My 2x2 will have some veggies, herbs and flowers

I will rotate my veggies as the season progresses and the squares clean out.
I'll plant the radishes and lettuce in shifts, some each week or two and cut the outside lettuce leaves as they grow rather than waiting for the plant to mature.

I tried to post the 4x4 box pic but I think I'll have to put that one in the next post. Didn't seem to like to different tinyurls??? ... Well, that's not working!!! ... Well, then maybe it did. I'll just forget about the 4x4 right now! Can you share your layout? Icon_biggrin Can you share your layout? Icon_lol Can you share your layout? Icon_lol

Stagger planting means that you "stagger the planting" - plant one square of cabbage on one day then plant the next square of cabbage a week later. This allows the plants to become "ripe" a week at a time instead of all at once. I do this with my lettuce and spinach. I plant a few squares of each. A few weeks later I plant a few more squares.

Hi Claire

For some reason it shows me my layout every time I click on the links. Could you just post the originals without the tinyurl?

Tim, this makes sense, and I was wondering why some gardens looks "so empty" in the beginning lol. Thanks for the explanation.

first if technical questions try ask them in forum for that instead going offtopic on other threads.

After harvesting a square you will want to plant a succession crop.
such as
spinach -> radish ->bush beans ->Chinese cabbage
spinach -> cucumbers->radish
early pea->tomatoes
lettuce->carrots
I can post more since have several charts on the subject.

Sorry I was so long getting back. Can you share your layout? Icon_flower Can you share your layout? Icon_flower

p.s. Garden plans and discussions about rotating crops are all appropriate topics here. They just do seem to go together.

Keep coming back, Happy Mommy and you will be a Happy Gardener in to time! Can you share your layout? Icon_smile
