Planting a Block of Tomatos instead of a Row?
Hello fellow square foot gardeners!
Just finished up my first year gardening and I'm addicted now =) Even if I only have a tiny community plot.
A have a quick question for you guys and gals. Have you experienced gardeners ever planted tomatoes together in a block instead of just a straight row? I don't have the space to plant them in a row across this year because I would like to try watermelons on a trellis.
It would be a 3x2 block, each plant getting 18" of space.
Much like this:

My question is would the south facing tomatoes shade the north ones too much? I get great south and west light, good north light and poor east light.
Thank you so much for your help everyone!!
