New Community Garden Plot
I am getting my new community garden plot ready to grow. I am debating on how to set it up. At home I have three raised beds for vegetable gardening. They are 4by8, 4by10 and 4by10. The communtiy garden space is 16 by 16. My original thought was to divide it into 9 4 foot squares with 2 foot paths in between. The outside paths are not part of my 16 feet, so it woudl be 4ft(bed) +2ft(path)+4ft(bed)+2ft(path)+4ft (bed) = 16ft along each side. Did I lose you so far? I started thinking about whether to use the space as nine 4 foot squares or if I should use it as three 4 by 16 foot beds. I could plant more within the space because I would be eliminating some paths with the 4 by16 foot beds. I have beds similar to this at home already. Any advice with 4 foot squares versus longer 4 foot wide beds?
I plan to plant peas, potatoes, broccolli, tomoatoes, peppers beans and cukes at this space.
