Hello my name is Jose Zuniga and I'm representing Well we got to the point to we got to space the plants. We got to know the height is very important that we know that because so of them are taller then the other ones. Like today we got our carrots those are going to go way in the front the row because they grow between 10 to 18 inches. Now second row we are going to have our green peas those grow between 10 to 18 inches so about the area. Now I also happen to have the lettuce now lettuce go all the way to back, because lettuces needs to get some of the partial sun. Now when it comes to the peas, those are going to grow between 5 and 6 feet so what is going to happen let them grow against the wall if that does not work just tie them with a little rope that will do the work. Now remember we still have those peppers that we have to transplant. Before we do any of that we need to give them 4 space between those rows and where the hole is so the water stays in that area. Then we give them 4space to one plant to another and they are going to be ready to be all transplanted. Remember about the little pencil yep it is coming very useful now what you are going to do for spacing purpose dig a little hole 2 inches approximate, another little hole 2 inches, another little hole 2 inches and you just go on and on and on. Do it 3 rows and that is how we are going to plant our seeds. Okay well this is how we space our plants for our vegetable garden.
