I don’t believe in the row method of planting a crop. Maybe because I’m just not that linear, but I’m convinced at least here in California, that it’s more efficient to grow the biointensive method.Planting areas of plants fairly close together, planted in compost rich soil. Plus inserting in areas of perennials, artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries and other berries. Flowers also insert themselves in my vegetable beds, I can’t control them, plus they’ve ended up being a fairly marketable product.
Areas reseed with multiple plants that I spread out and allow to grow where they and I deem fit. There are areas of “greens”, a potato bed, an artichoke area, under which potato’s keep coming back and sweet william bloom . A asparagus bed teeming with foxgloves and poppies. Tomatoes with crookneck squash on the end of that bed. Garlic with clary sage on the edges. Chard with nigella, roses and thyme plants. A long row of french beans.
In my other garden area I’ve tried to follow the row method. I have thirteen fairly well organized forty foot rows . Although the flowers are starting to find their way into the beds. Black eyed susans bloom all over the garden. Herbs are starting to edge some of the rows.I can just see the spots for roses on the ends of the beds.
I guess I’m hopelessly chaotic . But I can help to create this for others.
