More kitchen garden planning. 12.28.13

Image source:  vintageprintable.com

This is a table, template originating from about.com.  I edited out the vegetables I don't want, added others, changed for family of 4 to the 2 of us, and made some other changes.

In the raised beds, one row is 4 feet.  A bed is 4ft by 8 ft, a half bed is 4 ft by 4 ft.

Over-planning but have been sick and this makes me feel better.

Beets 1 row Spring + Fall plantings.  Trying again. Protect.
Bush Beans 1½ beds Succession Plant.  Experimenting with varieties.
Pole Beans ½ bed Single Planting.  Northernmost bed due to height.
Carrots 1 row Succession Plantings.  Experiment with varieties.
Swiss Chard 1 row Re-Grows after Harvesting Outer Leaves
Sweet Corn 1 row? If there is room.  Needs deer protection deer.  Needs to be on north side so not shading other plants.
