Planting Guides

My garden begins at the top of a slope that gently rolls down to a leveled off area. There is a fence across the top and it is divided into approximately 5-foot sections. There are four sections. I use these sections as a guide for planting my vegetables. So I have 5-foot rows of corn, 5 feet of tomato plants, 2 rows of spinach 5 feet long, etc. The slope is somewhat "terraced". Click on the photo to see a better view of the top slope of corn, the second slope of cabbages, and the third slope of onion sets. The bushy mass to the right are my 5 tomato plants and below them is a cantaloup with a melon peeking through the leaves. This photo was taken July 27.
