Wide Row Vegetable Garden Beds » Harvest to Table

A wide garden row is ideal for growing leaf and small root crops. For easy planting and maintenance grow lettuce, spinach, radishes, and carrots in rows the width of a standard 15-inch bow rake. A wide row also can be used for medium-sized crops such as cabbages, bush beans, and eggplants grown two across.

Wide rows are ideal for very small-seeded vegetables—seeds that are more easily broadcast than sown tiny seed by tiny seed. Unlike single rows, wide rows allow for a greater harvest from less space.

While plants may not grow in a series of straight rows with workspace on each side for the gardener, wide rows–about the width of your arm–will allow for intensive planting. Intensive planting or cropping places multiple crops in the same bed; you can grow more crops in one bed saving on space and labor and increasing yield.
