Mixing different type of vegetables

Does anyone here grow a mix of different types of vegetables all in the same system using the same nutrient solution? If so, what was your experience? Any tips would be appreciated. I want to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, eggplant, peppers, and maybe okra all in one system.

Not sure about okra, but the tomatoes, cukes, eggplant and peppers will all grow together well. Just space properly, 3-4 sq ft per plant.

RE: Mixing different type of vegetables

I've grown sweet peppers and eggplant together without a problem. Currently I'm growing some green peppers with sugar snap peas. I plan on adding some sweet peppers and basil to that system as well. they'll all be running at a concentration of approximately 650 ppm. I'm not sure how much the green peppers or basil will like that, but I know the peas and the sweet peppers should be fine. I wouldn't grow tomatoes with them though as they're heavy feeders and take a higher concentration (currently 900(-)ppm)
