Vegetable Garden, Bed 4

Bed 4 – Greens

This bed is really everything that’s NOT in the families planted in the other three beds.  In particular, brassicas need to be rotated, so they’re planted in this bed.  After four years, move each 2′ block over one block to the right so brassicas are in a different location within the bed than the last time greens were planted in the bed.

Bed Equipment:  4 vine towers for Malabar spinach
