I have 2 small raised bed that I will plant veggies in for the first time. Each bed is 4' x 8'. My question is this....How much can I expect to get from what I'm planting? Like, does planting 1 onion set result in 1 onion? I know shallots are like garlic so if I plant 1 shallot set will I get 1 cluster of shallots or will many clusters/bulbs grow? How much would 1 green bean bush produce for the season assuming I pick beans when ripe and don't allow it to go to seed? Same question with brussel sprouts. And lastly, garlic. If I plant 8 cloves should I expect only 8 bulbs to grow? I hope this isn't a stupid question. I don't want to grow too little or too much if I can help it.
My initial gut feeling is to plant 2 rows of onions and the same with the shallots. I'm considering sowing loose leaf lettuce in 2' x 4' square to start (I know I have to thin once sprouted), I'm thinking 2 brussel sprout bushes and 2 green bean bushes. 2 of each cherry and large tomatoes and also 2 sweet cherry pepper plants. I'm not sure about my garlic yet.
Thanks, in advacne! Anna
