New to Forum; First time Doing SFG

gardenermimiApril 26, 2009

Hi All:

I live in Southern California and am trying SFG for the first time this year. I have just finished pulling the drip lines to four raised bed boxes, 1' x 4' each with the bottom 6 inches top soil and the top 6 inches Mel's mix.

Now I can't find my book! If anyone has the patience and time to give me info about what how many plants and what type I can plant in each sq ft. I would appreciate it. I know radishe and carrots are 16 per sq. foot and I think tomatoes, cukes and beans are are 1 per. The rest is hazy.

I am planting cucumbers, tomatoes, bush beans, carrots, zucchini, green onions (scallions), Japanese eggplant, Bell peppers, and a couple of other things I can't recall because the list I made is inside the book!!

Thank you in advance,

This forum has a great FAQ section that I have been referring to to quite often. Won't take the place of the book, but it may help you out for now.

Here is a link that might be useful: GardenWeb FAQ: What are recommended plant spacings?
