SFG Plan. Need suggestions

brookhaven(Zone 5)March 10, 2009

Hi, I am new to SFG and gardening in general and need some input on my garden plan. I am open to suggestions. I am in zone 5 and need to get some seeds started outside within the next 2 weeks

Points of interest:

I will have trellises along the north side of the north boxes (as indicated by dashed lines)

The Roma boxes are actually planters that are about 18"x18"

I am growing Black Beauty Zucchini and am not confident in my ability to trellis it. Hence the 9x9 block as well as the trellis experiment.

I am still working out the succession planting but I hope this is somewhat close

Thanks for your input!

If you want to, I think you can plant more per square of your carrots, scallions, & radishes. I also wonder if it will be difficult to pick your beans between the squash & cucumber. I think I'd swap the position of the beans & butternut squash.

My Black Beauty Zucchini was a bush type. Last year, I somehow missed that fact and didn't really plan accordingly...
