Wide-Row Planting

by dig the dirt editor

A great tip on how to keep weeds out of your vegetable garden!

To increase the yield from your kitchen garden, plant crops like lettuce, beans, spinach, peas, and onions in wide bands or rows. Crops planted in this manner will produce more harvest per square foot than those planted single file in long, narrow rows. Plus, when you grow vegetables in wide rows, the plants will shade out any weeds that crop up.
