Want a perfectly spaced garden for all your vegetables? It isn't hard to organize your garden at all. These warm weather vegetables are best planted when all danger of frost is gone. Plant these only when it's warm at night and warm in the morning hours also.

Keep in mind that any plant this is growing on a vine needs to get planted in the back out of the way. These plants take up a lot of room. Cucumbers, beans and peas are climbing plants. They need to have some support on a fence in order to grow. Try using a trellis for a nice decoration to your garden space.

Next row we want to plant the lower of the plants, which are cabbage and lettuce. The third row you should plant carrots and then beets if you choose. Include chives and parsley and pepper plants here also.

The fifth row should get onions and any type of bulb vegetable.

The last row will hold tomatoes and squash very nicely.

These vegetables need warm weather to germinate. To plant them any sooner will cause them to freeze. You can plant the sweet potatoes, potatoes and peppers a bit sooner, but they won't grow until the soil is warm.

When all the plants have been harvested a first time, go ahead and re-plant another crop. Keep re-planting until you have your last crop of late season fall vegetables.

Remember, plant tall and climbing vegetables on the north and west sides of your garden. Plant early crops that will be replaced with the same crop from time to time until fall.

Plant early season peas, spinach and lettuce where you will plant the hot season vegetables.

Cabbage is one vegetable that likes to be planted in a different spot each year. Don't plant tomatoes, eggplant and peppers side by side, or where they have previously grown the year before.
