Square Foot Gardening Layout

Gaturz13February 4, 2013

I have a 4 X 16 foot raised bed and want to include Tomatoes, Beans, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Squash, Onions and Brussel Sprouts, with the majority of the space used for tomatoes, then zucchini and cucumbers. Squash, beans, brussel sprouts and onions in descending order. I saw a design for 1 plant per 1 foot section but I am thinking that will be way too cramped? Any suggestions to best utilize my space would be much appreciated!

tomatoes - vine, 1 per suare, bush 9 squares per plant
zuccini - vine, 1 per suare bush - 2 squares each plant
Brussel sprouts are a cool season vegetable, and your other plants are warm season They won't grow at the same time.

You should check out the SFG book or website for spacing information.

Also, just to add to the conversation- don't forget about plant placement with regards to sun location. When you get your peak amount of sun light, as your plants mature, you don't want your taller, bushy plants (like your tomatoes) shading out your lower growing plants.

Have fun!
