Having an I-can't-do-math day...
I need to plant something 6" apart.
If I have a 2W x 2L bed, my plant count is 9, assuming 6" in from the edges of the bed. Ratio: 9 plants : 4 sq feet.
If I extend the bed to 2W x 4L, my ratio goes to 21:8
If I extend to 2W x 6L, the ratio becomes 33:12
How many square feet do I need to get 1,000 items in, if the bed is not extended to more than 4 feet wide? I know this is probably a 5th grade ratio question, but I'm apparently not smarter than a 5th grader, and I have afternoon mush-brain.
