Hi! I live in NYC and recently bought a large planter box for my patio

The dimensions are: 70L x 24D x 29H. Due to the placement of my outdoor space, the wide part of the planter would be facing north (small ends facing east and west), so some sunlight but not direct.

Knowing that the space is a little small, I was wondering if anyone had advice on:

1) What veggies would work best with these dimensions?
2) How many different types of veggies/herbs would fit?
3) General advice for spacing, or developing rows?

Hi and welcome to NGA!

Veggies are going to want full sun - lots of full sun. That said, consider using the Square Foot Gardening method - that will utilize the space to the best advantage.
