I am planning to do a bale of hay veggie garden....has anyone ever done this before?
My front yard as of yesterday:
Look closely, and you'll see a suet birdfeeder hanging from a shepad's hook in that pot.

A lady in the VFW brought me..organic italian pole beans...and radishs and she picked me up Organic strawberrys and Blueberries....alas too many and I may wind up having to toss some...my neigbors are all gone on vacation
Been trying to find Borlotti beans to grow, and instead found these Dragon Tongue beans at Menard's:

Borlotti beans go under various names, like Cranberry beans. So far I can't tell whether they are the same or not; they're probably not the same.
Had the same trouble when discerning between French Breakfast and French Dressing radishes.
People actually joked with me about how scientific I was being. I was hunched over with a large measuring tape, holding it over a 1/4" inch row I spaded.
Every 2" I dropped in a seed [I hate thinning the seedlings, makes me feel guilty killing the cute little bio-critters].
20' x 12" = 240" ÷ 1 radish per 2" = 120 radishes.
I'm thinking about adding 3 or more rows like the above picture showing the seedlings.
I am the opposite, I plant pretty heavy. The germination rates on store bought seeds is typically around 85% so if you don't get too crazy thick the non-starters will 'do your thinning'.Every 2" I dropped in a seed [I hate thinning the seedlings, makes me feel guilty killing the cute little bio-critters].
So if I understand you have one 20' row? We typically plant things like radishes, onion sets (scallions), leaf lettuce in blocks of 6-8 rows 4-6' long (or broadcast in the same space). These plants are not typically cultivated so row spacing to allow for tilling/hoeing is not necessary thus the block method is more effecient. This also allows you to replant that block once the produce is harvested.I'm thinking about adding 3 or more rows like the above picture showing the seedlings.
