Planning a vegetable garden
How much space should I leave between tomato plants? I have garden (10 x 8) and want to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, 1 red pepper, green onions, and herbs. Any ideas on how many tomatoes and cucumber plants would fit?

Some varieties of tomato plants are more vigorous than others, but most require about 3 feet of space between plants. Similarly, some cucumbers are bush types and require less space than rampantly vining types. Plan on a minimum of 2-3 feet of space between hills of cucumbers. (Usually they are planted with 3-4 plants in a cluster or "hill").
