I need help from the experts.
I am planning my first potager. I have played around with some ideas on paper, but I am just not sure what to do. I want it to look attractive and not just a jumbled mess. My husband has bulked on this idea several times before, saying everything will just look like a mess. I hope to prove him wrong since he has finally decided to do this for me. I am hoping that I might get some planting ideas from some of you experienced growers. I have really done very little veggy gardening in the past. I have had bush green beans and tomatoes in the past. My biggest obstacle is keeping deer out so I am going to put a fence around it. The entire area is about 28x21. Four 4x8 beds in center with a 2 foot deep bed around the inside perimeter. Below is a pic of my plan.
I want to add marigolds, and other flowers inside as well. I have several things I am wintersowing.I would appreciate any help or ideas you have, dont have much of my own.
