I made my introductory post [url]https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=42808[/url] before heading here to get some input. Last year I grew some amazing corn and a little bit of lettuce. It was more for an itch I had just to see if I could grow corn. Well that went really well so now I'm looking to expand and make it a summer hobby and get some good eats out of it
My original garden was 7x10' and I am expanding to approx. 10x20'. I have put here a picture of my proposed setup (I'm an OCD planner and executor) so apologies if it seems overboard. I tried to pick crops that me and my wife like and that I would be able to grow in a shoreline CT town.
-Peppers (red, green, yellow/orange, not entirely decided yet)
I don't want to ask yield because it obviously can vary greatly, but with the numbers of expected plants I want for each I have the following questions;
1) Are there any veggies that I may be overdoing or underdoing? We don't always just feed ourselves.
2) I planned on staking the tomatoes with the cages and then using a coated wire fencing with posts for the peppers and cucumbers. Is that the best approach? I heard trellis growing can give more crop yield.
3) I did my separations based on random internet searching and used that for my planning. Are there any advisements on spacing? planting on flat or raised mounds? Adding more of a type of plant somewhere?
4) Does my garden seem logical or crazy in terms of what I am looking to grow?
5) Are there any other plants you think would work well or that I may be interested in growing?
I'm making a separate post with garden prep questions so please don't hate for my numerous questions. I feel I am off to a good start with what I was able to accomplish last year. Hopefully I can keep it going.
