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.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
