Q.Designing Rows in Vegetable Garden

Anonymous added on April 5, 2014 | Answered

I’m planting corn, carrots, green onions, purple hull peas, green beans, lima beans, yellow squash, zucchini squash, okra, tomatoes, bell peppers, and potatoes. Is there any certain order in which I should plant the rows? My rows are about 40 feet long. I live close to Houston, Texas.

The layout and planting of your vegetable garden is based more on personal preference and what works best for you rather than any specific order or design. However, planting crops in a way in which all are supplied with ample amounts of sunlight is best--such as with taller plants in rows further back to prevent shading.
