Weed'em & Reap meeting notes plus wide row plantingsPosted Thursday, February 26, 2009, at 9:30 PM
Richard's wide rows starting out
Richard wrote in to discuss the benefits of wide row plantings in the garden.
"I've been using this technique for years with my Broccoli, Cabbage, Lettuce, Spinach, Greens and Onions. I started using the technique back in the mid 80's and it has been beneficial in saving space for one thing in a small garden space."
"I just wanted to pass this along to you in case you might find it useful". He has a nice looking garden and I posted some of his photos on the W&R page. Go check them out.
He also sent a description of the plants and layout. I will post them for another blog.
I use wide rows for carrots, beets and Chinese cabbage. How about anyone else? What plants do you like to do this with?
Anyone want to explain more about wide row plantings for those of us who are new to the concept? Any other benefits beside getting more in a smaller space? (that benefit is enough, but....)
