    Thank you Nenupar. I'm always looking for seeds.

    Today I was researching 6 foot by 3 foot raised bed vegetable gardens and ran across this. The total space is 6' by 3" and each 12 inches square with the following plants in each square.

    Thanks for this link, Carol. I love it! I think the "Plant it and Leave it" Garden would work well for me. *L* Then again, the High Yield garden plan looks good, too, and vegetables like kale and swiss chard do quite well in our northern climate. Thubs Up
