recommendations for demonstration plot?
I am planning an heirloom demonstration garden at my community garden (www.DowlingCommunityGarden.org). The garden will be used throughout the season for the public to visit, and will be featured at our August Heirloom Festival. All produce from this garden will be donated to a local food shelf.
With this in mind, what varieties of vegetables are especially liked and you'd recommend? I'm looking for crops that will be relatively high-yielding, so the food shelf gets lots of produce. I am also aware that food shelf recipients may not want to eat unfamiliar vegetables, so I am trying to resist from planting things like ARGG tomato, or Golden Sweet snow pea (but I might sneak something in).
Garden size is 19' x 19'. I'll be growing in raised beds, intensively planted, and will probably try for both spring and fall crops.
Looking forward to your suggestions.
