Is this too elaborate for a beginner?
And a question on placement of the Corn. The corners I'd like to be Corn & Tomatoes. Tomatoes will be paired with Marigold edging where you see that lettuce on the other one.
Based on sunlight and wanting to place lettuce in front of the corn, should I put the Corn/Lettuce in the Southwest corner, or will that shade the garden too much in the afternoon? This is exact placement of the garden...directly square with N/S/E/W directions.
I'm still toying with the big sections of marigolds and might opt to go with herbs instead (except that if you've seen my posts on the Veggie forum, I have no real need or use for herbs).
Probably Cukes & Melons on the long East-End ones, and rooty stuff in the little boxes like carrots & beets. Will want to put broc/cauli somewhere, and not sure what smallish thing to put in the little triangles near the Zinnias.
I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks for the input.
(the plot is ~30x40)
