i been playing with a garden company square foot gardening software and i been wouldering if i this can be done for southern alaska areas south of anchorage inbetween homer and anchorage areas ....
here the basic sized of the rasied bed garden set up i have planed for the front yard area ..
-x-5.ft wide-x-12.ft long-x-2.1./2,ft tall ..for makeing easly on me to get the fuits and vegs as need
the unit has a small set down typle ledge around the unit to make easly for me to sit and harvest the items as need .
let go left to right on the raised garden set up
this section is-x-2.ft tall-x-5..ft wide-x-9.ft long area for the following crops
then it comes to the fuits section of the bed ..
this section is 2.ft tall-x-5.ft wide-x-.3.ft long ..
-x-row of cantaloupes-x-3-diff typles in the one row for them -x-1 per squares section -
-x-row of watermelons -x-2-diff typles in a section and a half of the row unit
-x-row of strawberrys-x-1-row
so i figure this would be the best set up for the small area tha i might have for growing the vegs in town area,..
with the frame of the raised bed garden is going to set up also to be able to make into a hot bed typle set up so to start the vegs and fuits in may time frame ..by add the plastic hoop kit and cover unit to make the unit a hot bed unit as need ..
also i should be able to put away a good amount of the garden in canning for the first couple of the years the garden is going to be a little lite on the growing of my food needs ..but after a couple of years it should be produceing a good size crop after that ...
so is it a good idea or bad idea
