This is collection of seeds that we began using in the starter kit. The list of vegetables and the layout was taken from Mel Batholomew's book on square-foot gardening.

Overall, it's an interesting collection to work with, but there are some things that could improve:

  • Too dense. The plants don't seem to have enough space. It may be better to move to a 3x3 grid instead of a 4x4 grid.
  • The tomatoes, the cucumbers, and the beans require a lot of height. The greenhouse, even with a roof at 1m40 is to low to house them. Should the greenhouse be higher, or should we seek other varieties?
