Here are the front yard square beds in March 2017. From right to left:
____________________________________________ #covercrop: a beautiful rye and clover mix planted in early november. These cover crops are a cheap way to promote soil health over the winter. In april they'll be tilled in to make room for eggplant and peppers. 
____________________________________________ #peas and #brassica (like #bokchoy and #broccoli). It'll then be the misc. box over the summer. I've covered it with fencing to keep the durned cats out. 
____________________________________________ #chard, #spinach, #beets, and #fennel: these leafy greens are prone to leaf miners (the tunneling larvae of some kind of insect or moth), so i cluster them and keep them covered. They'll likely be followed by beans and squash starting in may/june
