The Q&A Archives: Vegetable Garden Layout

Question: I would like a garden layout for my 10' x 20' plot. I want to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, string beans, peas, lettuce and peppers.

Answer: For a layout that you can adapt easily to your specific measurements, you might wish to consult with a good vegetable gardening book -- one I particularly suggest for the plants you listed in an area such as yours is "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew, ISBN 0-87857-340-2. This particular book also addresses such issues as rotating your plantings from year to year and succession cropping so you can grow spring, summer and fall crops. Enjoy your garden!
