Spacing out your garden is very important for the productivity and health of your garden. If you plant to close together your plants will not have the room to grow. On the other hand if they are to far apart your garden is not going to be as productive as it could be. I found this website which can help with design and organization of your plants. Good luck.
Off to the restaurant to work with more root vegetables. I am thinking of Thousand Hills grass feed New York with parsnip-potato puree, brussel sprouts, bacon lardons, and smoky blue cheese from Carr Valley creamery. All components are local gown!!!
