ok I have a total of 8 10'x4' plots almost ready to go. Now I need help figure out what to put in what plots. I have 2 rows of 4 plots. I know people say to put some items to the north and that but not sure what to put where. I am planting tomatoes (2 plots) peppers (2 plots) lettuce, cucumbers, zuccini one is gonna be a mix of herbs (basil, green onions, oregano, and a few others. also gonna be adding another row of plots later for corn.

opps mistake its beans in the first new rows being added and another plot of corn will be added later than that.

RE: how to plan plots

Put you tallest plants an the north side so that they don't shade the shorter ones.

RE: how to plan plots

I say put the tallest (tomatoes and cucumbers) in the middle. The shorter heat and sun loving plants (zuchinni and squash) go south/west. The plants that like a little shade and cooler afternoons go to the north/east (lettuce, onions, oregeno).

I lay my beds out with paper and pencil first noting any trees, bushes, structures and north south east west. While I don't usually follow it strictly I find it helps alot.
