  • Steve, Glad to see you posted my info in a blog. I can give some more info on the wide row gardening method. I have 3 books that I've used for over 20 yrs now as references for gardening. Garden Way's Joy of Gardening by Dick Raymond, Crockett's Victory Garden, and The New Victory Garden by Bob Thomson, all of which can be found and purchased on Ebay. I have planted other crops in wide rows successfully, such as English Peas, and Snow Peas. Never really cared for Beets so I don't plant them.

    I plant multiple vegetables in wide rows together, such as Radishes, Spinach, Leaf Lettuce. One additional benefit is the soil gets shaded quicker to lessen weeds and to hold in moisture. Another benefit is increased yield in less space.

    I'd be happy to share more information on the subject of gardening and wide row planting.

  • Oh, one other thing is my garden spot is a bit confined due to the way my back yard lays. It has a bit of a slope in it and there is a natural drain across my backyard. The garden is roughly 30 x 50, so approximately 1500 sq ft..

    It might be possible for me to give a brief talk at one of your meetings.
