4'x8' - How many Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash is too many?
Brand new to gardening and will be starting a 4'x8' Sq. Ft garden this summer.
If I were to have
5 Squares Tomatoes
4 Squares Sweet Peppers
2 Squares Hot Peppers
3 Squares Squash
Would that be too many tall plants for this size Sq Ft Garden? I could build 2 trellises in the north side of the garden. That would give me 8 squares with trellises.
Only the Tomato & Squash would need a trellis, correct? I'm not sure if putting the peppers in front of the tomatoes would drown them out? Would there be enough room for a square of Eggplant as well?
Other that the plants listed above was thinking of
8 - Lettuce/Baby Lettuce/Arugula
4 - Herbs
2 - Pole Beans
1 - Leek
1 - Cucumber
