Need some replacement plant ideas for front of the bed

CaraRoseMay 28, 2013

I have a 3x3 bed, trellis in the back three squares with one square of sugar snap peas, two others are pole beans. Middle squares are all broccoli. I have/had fennel in the front squares. I already harvested one, another will be harvested shortly. Third one still isn't quite bulbed up yet.

So I'll have two front squares open, depending on the third fennel bulbing up or bolting sooner rather than later, maybe three. I was thinking maybe bush beans for one. Anyone have any suggestions? Is it too late for onions (regular, not bunch), beets, or turnips? Kale? Okra?

My other beds have lettuce, summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.

My go-to favorite is ruby swiss chard; very hardy, and you can cut the outer leaves to keep it coming. Saute in olive oil with fresh herbs and pine nuts (I add diced ham, too) - yum!
