One planter bed just four feet square can produce a huge harvest of lettuces, spinach and kale for a family. In my garden, I have one 4×8 raised bed divided in half with my strawberries at one end and my mixed lettuces, spinach and kale occupying the other end. As the season progresses, I add trellises and runner beans to help shade the lettuces as the season grows warmer. When the lettuces are done, I use the bed for vegetables that start later in the season and grow to a fall harvest.
