Hey,
I am new to gardening, and am interested in trying square foot gardening in 82sqft..
I am trying to plan out how I would plant my vegetables, and also how many. I don't really know if I have too many of something, not enough of something else.... Am I putting them in the right spot?
Any advice would be great.

Welcome to the forum :)

Read the book on square foot gardening back in the 80's but decided it was a bit of a faff.

Just have a think about what you like to eat, lob a few in, see what you like then adjust what you need for next year :)

Your combination looks a good mix. I grow similar vegetables plus onions in my raised beds and greenhouse.

As Zigs says, I would just plant what you eat and adjust the quantities accordingly.

Welcome to the forum, @Dog812 !

Stagger your sowing time for Salad leaves ( which is come and cut) as they can be harvested very quickly. Also Pak choi is a good tasty and easy to grow green. Land cress is prolific and full of anti oxidants. Kale is also good for your health. Rocket is also a worthwhile addition. Easy to grow and nice to enjoy with bland mozzorella cheese. Spring onion is a must. One rosemary to live like the Mediterraneans - good for roasted chicken, pork and lamb. But go for a standard or a drappy one rather than the usual ones. Hope you can experiment and find out what's best for you. Good luck and remember to share your pride and joy with us.
