This garden size is good for a large family wanting a variety of crops. It is perfect for joining with other families. If 2 families each take half the beds, it's cheaper than purchasing separately. This option offers the least cost per bed at just $29. This size of garden can be used to raise extra produce to sell or give away. One year I planted a full bed of each herb in Italian Seasoning. If fact we are still seasoning our food from that experiment.
