Vegetable Garden Planting Chart

Filed under: Vegetables — bob @ 1:20 pm

Sometimes it’s hard to decide how much to plant.  How many seeds do you plant to get the amount of vegetables you need at harvest time?  Maybe you have decided to make pickles this year; how much do you plant?

Here is a chart I found in my old files.  It was developed by Michigan State University in 1974.  I referred to it all time back then, as you can see by all the markings on it.

This chart was designed for a garden that will be planted in rows; raised beds and/or grid planting will produce different yields.

Use this chart as a reference point to decide planting and harvest rates.

This chart is pretty old but I believe the information is still pretty accurate.
