The garden hasn't done as well in recent years as it did early on. I was able to grown certain things easily and last year just about nothing grew. The problem areas and most heavily weedy areas were covered with back plastic for about 6-8 months and I just uncovered them a week ago. I have removed all of the dead weeds and am cleaning and amending the soil.
The rows have been organized many ways and like this configuration best. There is a narrow perimeter row against the fence. I need that fence to shade the cool weather plants like peas and spinach because our growing season for them is short. There are wide raised beds that can be double rowed planted for things like beans and tomatoes and can be accessed from both sides. This configuration minimizes the walking paths, therefore giving me the maximum planting area.
