You need to be able to easily weed around your plants or you won't!

This past year my beds were intentionally long and wide.  This wouldn't have been a problem except that I also planted my rows close together.

When it came time to weed/cultivate, I found that there wasn't adequate room to move about the beds.  I damaged some plants and simply didn't weed around others because of the hassle caused by my mistake.

This year, my beds are all a maximum of 4 feet wide with 3 feet between them to give me working room.  It will reduce my planting space by about 1/3, but at the same time, it will reduce the effort in caring for the beds.

Tony.

May I suggest a large pot full of quick-growing radishes, to grow your confidence? Have fun!
