The question arose today about just how much we can expect to get from our garden as far as edibles go.
We are planning on planting spinach, lettuce (mixed varieties), radishes, tomatoes, a variety of peppers (poblano, bell, thai), some broccoli, strawberries.
We have a 4' x 8' x 16" deep raised bed that will be built in the next day or so.
My family is really new to gardening vegetables and we were wondering just how much can realistically come from our garden.
Something to note, we will be planting Roma Tomatoes in pots on the deck and they will not be in the garden area. Cherry tomatoes will also be done in this fashion.
Peppers will probably go in an in-ground garden about 3' x 6' area.
We would love to grow cucumbers but are aware that they need to be trellised fairly high according to some websites we have seen.
Our goal....lofty one I am sure....is to be able to make some tomato sauces for use over the winter months (keeping fingers crossed).
Thanks for the help.....trying to figure out how to plant things in the raised bed and just about everything else is quite daunting!
