I've settled on building 6 8'x4' raised bed boxes, oriented north-south, with 7' tall remesh trellises at the south end of each. I started my plan by placing climbers and large plants and it felt like I was quickly going to run out of room for everything else. but now I am struggling to fill in the last few open squares whilst simultaneously wishing for more trellis space.
here's how ham I went:
Provider Bush Green Beans
Scarlet Runner Pole Beans
Oregon Giant Snow Peas
Sugarsnap Snap Peas
National Pickling Cucumbers
Longfellow Slicing Cucumbers
Waltham Butternut Squash
Coral Early Carrots
Scarlet Nantes Main Season Carrots
French Breakfast Radishes
Clear Dawn Yellow Storage Onions
Gildenstern Iceberg or Crisphead Lettuce
Salad Bowl Looseleaf Lettuce
Tom Thumb Butterhead Lettuce
Fordhook Giant Chard
Piracicaba Non-Heading Broccoli
Mammoth Red Rock Red Cabbages
January King Green Cabbages
Red Russian Siberian Kale
Dazzling Blue Dinosaur Kale
King of the North Sweet Bells
Purple Blush Tomatillos
Amish Paste Tomatoes
Jewel Mix Nasturtiums
Mammoth Mix Sweet Peas
@dthompson I do wonder when the cross-pollinization from the FSF occurred..
addendum: the nice thing about seeds is you can go absolutely ham and buy a million packets and still spend less than $100. #growyourown

someone took the Code Geass opening theme and made a Bernie Sanders opening credits sequence and it's quite possibly the best thing I've seen in a long time.
I mainly post about permaculture, woodworking, and free software.
