As I probably wrote too many times before, I'm a big proponent of the Grow Biointensive method of growing food, following the pree 1985 compost recommendations. Its amazing how closely you can plant if you use three inches of compost, and other fertilizers at a time. I just wanted to put up a few photos of my zone 6 garden in progress.
Garlic planted last fall on 5 inch spacing. I divided heads bought at the grocery store, and planted only the largets cloves. Which made cooking a pain for a few weeks, LOL
Carrots, thinned to 2-3 inches in all directions. Yes that's clover in the foreground, I rarely weed that out. I don't think that I would have room for carrots if I grew them in rows
cabbage planted closely when the reach a pound of so we start harvesting for coleslaw, and the remaining ones grow a little bigger
.black seeded simpson lettuce interplanted with snow ball cauliflower
Cucumbers, planted on 12 inch spacing to grow up a trellis.
And the first pepper of the season. For reasons I don't understad the peppers are weeks ahead of the tomatoes this year.
