I prefer the square foot method hence my name. but there are so many others such as wide row spacing, standard row spacing, offset spacing and several more.
well I havent that much room,so compact rows .
Not sure what the square foot method is - but I plant most things close together in beds no bigger than I can reach across without treading on them then eat gaps out to allow the rest of the crop to grow into the spaces - and get longer cropping times
Tried square foot method this year found harvesting spuds difficult and cabbages too large I will modify it next year maybe things grow smaller in America for Mel Bartholemew.
