I was curious, I was reading Mel's book, and he recommends a spacing of 9 bush bean plants per square feet. I cannot see how that would work and the plants still be productive and produce all that they can. Same with onions, an onion per inch is way small. I planted onion sets every three inches and found that spacing to be adequate.
My question is this...does everyone follow the spacing recommendations? If so, how does things turn out?
