One bed, or many?
Hi. I'm new to this forum, and to posting in general, but I have been lurking around here for some time, and it fits my garden style.
I'm hoping for a bit of discussion. I'm in the process of renovating the space behind my garage. It's about 16 x 24 feet, and currently has 2 freeform-shaped beds that I find hard to plant row crops in, but I like the feeling of it. I've been debating about whether to dig one big rectangular bed with access keyholes, or build a number of small raised beds with foot paths between them. Does anyone have a preference for one big bed or many small ones? What are the pros and cons of each? Looking forward to your responses.
