I was naughty today...

Post  Amethyst42 on 5/14/2013, 9:19 pm

So in Large Box #1 I have now have 1 square French breakfast radishes, two squares Bloomingsdale longstanding spinach, and one square bunching green onion.
? ? beansbeans
peas (pl)peas(pl) ? ?
kale collard beet ?
radish(pl) spinach(pl) spinach(pl) green onion(pl)
Any suggestions on better placement? (pl) = already planted.

I'm planning on making one! I have materials, just have to put it all together.

For me personally I would move the peas to the top by the beans that way the wont shadow anything as the grow up. Also that way the trellis doesn't get in the way of you gardening in the other squares. Just my opinion...

I would agree with mschaef on moving the peas. They should be ok to move. I like the idea of pushing the limit a bit on planting. Everything else looks great and sure sounds yummy! You still have many weeks before you will need your trellis so there is no rush.

To save yourself looking for pea seeds /or moving plants you could keep the peas low on say 18 inch high twigs and train them to the left side of the bed then take then up a support system on the left of the bed

Most peas ( unless dwarf ones ) will happily grow to four or five feet tall so long as you keep picking the peas when young and tender till they just fill the pod rather than waiting for them to go rock hard & bust it open.
