What to plant in Coastal NC

Post  ralitaco on 4/16/2015, 8:33 am

So I have been documenting my adventure in another thread - Adventures in Table Top and I finally have my Table Top filled and I am almost ready to go, I just need to mix in some fresh compost to rejuvinate the MM. So that means I am looking at what to plant and how to lay out the SFG. I posted this in my other thread but didn't get too many replies so I thought I'd try in the Regional forum (hope that's ok). Please let me know your thoughts
I'm in zip 28443 in zone 8
Thanks.

So here is what I think I will plant, where they will be planted and how many per square. I think I have selected the right plants for summer. I think I will need to buy transplants vs starting from seed at this point.

Let me know your thoughts, concerns, suggestions, etc.

So far I only have one 4x4 bed. I am planning 2 more 2x8's. Unfortunately I don't have a set schedule for work and only every other weekend off so I only get a few hours a week to work on them.
