From my own garden plans, two of my raised beds with plans for greens, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli.
In our Gardening 101 series, we’ve talked about a lot of different things so far… how to select seeds for better success, growing herbs, gardening based on where you live, square foot gardening. I know that the process of planning what and how much and when and where to plant everything can be one of the most daunting aspects of gardening.
In this two part series, I’m going to walk you through the process of planning out an actual garden— my own.
It’s all about taking theories and concepts, and turning them into vegetables on your plate. Your list might look quite different, but from #1-19, these are the veggies that matter to me most (I know, I’m not exactly a minimalist, am I?). For now, make a list of the veggies that most matter to you (or fruit, if that’s something you want in your garden- I grow just a few things, like some raspberry canes and a rhubarb plant). Personally, I like to grow enough to eat freely throughout the harvest season, with as much extra for preserving as possible. There are a lot of charts out there that tell you how much you need to grow to feed a family of 4. I find the info in the book Square Foot Gardening gives a good general guide for determining how much room I need. I have 86.5 sq ft in raised beds, another 38 sq ft in the ground, a garbage can for my potatoes and a bunch of containers for my raspberries. Ultimately, I find that it’s easiest to just guess-timate how much our family eats and plan to plant in accord with those numbers.
Now your next step is to take your list from Step 1, and either based on your own gardening experience or these links, jot down beside each vegetable how much you might need to grow to get what you want.
In this snapshot of part of my garden, I'm growing 12 tomato plants, 2-4 for fresh eating and the rest for preserving. I’m using their 30-day free trial at the moment (a one-year subscription is $25, 2 years is $40). In the next post, I’ll continue to walk you through translating those numbers of what you desire to grow and harvest into the space that you actually have available, and then some tips on how to arrange it all in a way that works.

I messed with it earlier this year and it seems to have the capabilities you mentioned but is free. It is a giant list of preserving recipes, with lots of links to other ones on my own sites and well as from other sites. Emily, we use raised beds but bunnies can still hop into the bed if they are of a mind to do so. Rabbits don’t like onions, so if you plant some onions here and there in your strawberry bed, that might help keep them away, too. One thing I like to base my veggie growing selection upon is the veggies my kids will snack on during the summer. Another thing I like to take into consideration is the veggies my kids enjoy helping me harvest. I am planting my first garden this year and the biggest challenge for me is to keep it small so I don’t overwhelm myself…I keep thinking of new things I want to plant!
I love your blog…I have found so many useful articles–thank you for sharing it all!
What surprised me about growing food for the first time?  How FAST the plants grow, how much FUN they are to observe, and the happy conclusion that growing food has changed the way I eat. The Bigger the Better so that roots can have room to grow but most importantly, to require less frequent watering.
Edibles can become pretty big plant by mid-summer, so the key to growing them in containers is buying plants that are the right size. Good edibles for beginners include beans, peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, chard, zucchini, radish, spinach, kale, peppers, mint, oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary and strawberries. And why not mix lovely flowers into the same containers or nearby containers to create a lovelier garden AND to attract beneficial insect?
Drip irrigation on a timer is a great idea and one I’m determined to try next season.


While you’re checking your plants every day is a good time to remove spent flowers and foliage. An update, in which I ask for ideas about supporting the larger plants, and whether tomatoes need pruning.
Many thanks to Renee Shepherd for coaching me in veg-growing and helping with this article. GAP Gardens - A small wildflower meadow of daisies, poppies, toadflax, clover, cow parsley and cornflowers sown in the middle of a lawn beside raised vegetable beds planted with potatoes, rhubarb and beans.
Often times when we talk about Companion Planting we discuss the plants that play nice together and should always be planted side-by-side in our gardens.
Well, I’m here to give you the dish on what plants to NOT plant together when you are companion planting, even if they would look just perfect in your vegetable or herb garden next to each other. Anything in the bean family, whether it is growing string green beans or bush beans all the way to lima beans don’t get along with quite a few other vegetables. Peas are cousins to beans and they also loathe the bulb veggies including chives, garlic, leeks, and onions. Besides cauliflower and broccoli, steer clear of planting cilantro and cucumbers near tomatoes. That’s my favorite reason for having hicken wire: all that space for climbing veggies!
I usually don’t post to these sort of things but there are a few inaccuracies in your post. The production of those peppers picked up to normal and all the new peppers are normal shaped! While I appreciate your input as well as your being a Master Gardener, I would also like to mention (again) that this article was written for me by one of my writers who is also a Master Gardener.
I have been gardening for years I don’t agree with you on the sun flowers I have always lined the back of my garden with sunflowers and have never had a problem with quantity of veggies I also plant marigolds by my trellis of beans and always have more beans than I can eat. I have heard that cucumbers love sunflowers, and that you may even use the sunflowers as a living trellis for the cucumber plant. I’ve always planted my beans right next to (a foot away) from my peppers (all types) and never had a problem with either. These clay stamped garden markers were SO fun to make and we are loving having them in our garden! Spell out the words you want to stamp based on what you are planting and stamp them onto your clay strips. Once they cooled, we painted ours with watercolor paints, but you could use any paints you have on hand. We have been watching and tracking our plants for a month now and have seen some great progress, especially with the Gro-ables! If you are not familiar with Gro-ables, they are small biodegradable seed pods that contains everything you need to grow a fruit, herb, or vegetable.
I’m going to show you the steps I take, how I make my decisions, what the plans look like, and how those plans translate into simple steps that I can follow through with. I’ll tell you right now that I don’t have as much space in my garden as I have veggies on my wishlist.
Do it based on what your family eats the most, on what costs the most where you live, on vegetables that you want to buy organic but can’t afford (the Dirty Dozen comes in handy here), on the things that you think taste the best when they’re garden fresh, etc.
At this point, with only a small-ish backyard garden, I certainly don’t expect to put enough nearly food up to keep us going through the winter (though it is surprising how much can be grown in a small space). They’re usually based on rows, which I don’t find very helpful (although some do show how many plants per row, and the yield, which is slightly more useful).
He writes about how many 4×4 ft blocks (or 16 square feet) you need to feed fresh produce to 2 people (2-4 blocks, depending how much you eat and the variety you want), 4 people (4-6 blocks), and then additional space for preserving.
If I planted 112, that would do us through about 14 weeks of summer (mid-June to end of September). If I want to also preserve zucchini in addition to eating it fresh, for example, I will grow 2 plants instead of 1, so that I can shred and freeze a lot for the winter. In the last 3 years we’ve moved 3 times, and two of those 3 years will be participating in a CSA. I’ve got all my seedlings started, have my plot tilled and have been adding organic fertilizers to it, but have not been able to find any information at all about where to plant things in the garden.
I am also trying to grow a sugar baby watermelon, in addition to my Far North Melons (like a musk melon, I think).


Most vegetables need at least a 5-gallon pot, while herbs, lettuce and similar shallow-rooted plants can be grown in smaller pots. Some kits will water up to 10 pots or containers from a single faucet.  They allow people to go on vacation without hiring a waterer. If you are just Getting Started With Square Foot Gardening, you may want to just plant everything that you want at once. They’ve got an idea of things they’d like to grow, they know where the garden will be, they’ve bought some seeds, but now what?
According to the Square Foot calculations I should be able to grow enough to feed us well during harvest months, plus have some to preserve. I like to can and dehydrate about 60-100 lbs of tomatoes each summer, so I’ll want another 8-10 plants purely for preserving purposes. You use it’s tools to draw up a map of your yard or garden, as close to scale as possible (you can be quite precise with it), and then you drag and drop the specific crops that you want to grow.

I feel that in order to gain that title, one must successfully keep a plant…Save Money with Perennials In Your Flower Garden By Hilary Bernstein, Contributing Writer I love flowers. We are installing a raised bed this year so I would appreciate any info about natural animal deterrents.
Lettuce is high on my list because it is currently so expensive and can be grown so inexpensively!
I mean, even though we love having sunflowers in the neighborhood they sure don’t play well with others.
They are not fans of bulb-type vegetables (luckily, you can grow many bulb vegetables from kitchen scraps)! They are not fans of peppers, all types of squash including yellow squash and even pumpkins (and yes – this means that if you are growing zucchini, you need to plant them far away). Sunflowers have also been known to purify soil, (phytoremediation) and have been used to detoxify soil for years. I just want to put healthy and flavorful meals on the table quickly without having to rely on processed foods, while still trying to maintain a household. It is great for the kids to know where each plant is and it is great for me to help keep track of everything, too! When the paint is dry you will need to coat it with a glaze to make sure the paint does not wash off in the garden. You can pull them larger to make rows or blocks of the same crops, you can label them as specific varieties (like my 6 different tomato varieties), and all sorts of other customizations. But if I try to stick to a budget when gardening, I’d rather focus my spending on…10 Ways to Include Toddlers and Preschoolers in the Garden By Leigh Ann Dutton, Contributing Writer Being in my garden is one of my favorite things to do. I will have to start paying attention more, or I could just plan meals based on what I have. Basically, they are wooden frames with a mesh stapled to them so that animals cannot get through.
They emit a toxin from their roots that inhibits other plants from growing too close to them as they want all the nutrients in the surrounding soil. Beans also don’t do well with peppers, either the sweet green peppers or their fiery cousins the jalapenos. Sunflowers have been planted in radio active areas to soak up toxins where there has been nuclear fallout and devastation. It shows you the spacing that each plant needs, and give you sowing and harvest dates (which are based on weather stations near your home, so they’re fairly accurate). One plant that I was shocked that beans don’t get along with are marigolds, which are typically crowd pleasers as they deter pests. It seems the cool season crops of broccoli and cauliflower have something against those fruits and veggies that like it a little hotter to grow. Also tomatoes and cucumbers do quite well when planted next to each other, they both warm season crops that require good soil drainage, the same pH, and deep watering. I would have to say if you use the right soil and plant wisely and educationally and check your garden science and not follow the word of people wanting to be the next best web thing.
