Kitchen Gardener Mistakes (2)

2. Planting your crops too close together. When seeds are sown, or transplants are planted everything is small, and there is a lot of open space. It is common to try to plant closer than the recommended spacing to get more output per a limited space. In fact you may decrease your output, as plants that can't get proper air circulation are more susceptible to disease. Additionally larger plants will grow taller than smaller plants and shade them out.
