In September we built 6 8’x 4’x 1’raised beds. Now we would like some help and direction on how to organize the beds to get the best results. We would like to have things like lettuce (head & leaf); spinach; tomatoes (beefsteak, salad and cherry); bell peppers; peas; carrots (various); cantaloupe; herbs (rosemary, assorted basil, oregano, assorted thyme, lavender, tarragon, chives, cilantro, parsley and sage among others; various chiles (hot & mild); broccoli; cauliflower; garlic and zucchini. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!
