Before planting any vegetables, prepare a map of how you want your garden to physically look. There are many vegetables that do not ripen at the same time. It might be helpful to plant vegetables that ripen at the same time close to each other. Plants that are tall will need to be planted far away from the small plants, to reduce sun competition. Try not to plant the same vegetables every year in the same place. Crop rotation helps to eliminate many bugs and insects, which are known to infest gardens. The table below divides vegetables into groups, or families, which do not need to be planted in the same place consecutively.
