Bed 4: Cool Season

This traditional row-type layout lends itself to a variety of options.

Cauliflower (1): Substitute cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, or mustard greens.

Swiss chard: The red (2) and yellow (3) varieties shown in this design make a pretty contrast to the blue-green of the cauliflower in the center of the bed. Substitute Asian greens, such as pak choi or bok choy.

Radishes (4) and dill (5): Radishes grow quickly, which means you can replant as soon as they’re harvested and get in a few plantings each season. Substitute cilantro or parsley for both the dill and the radishes, if you like.
