    I am going to plant broccoli, Romaine lettuce, Strawberries, onions, and bush green beans. I was wandering what is taller than what so I can plant the tall stuff in the back and the smaller in the front so I can see them all from my window?

    Depending on the varieties, I would guess the order tallest to smallest would be:
    Broccoli, Romaine, Onions, Beans and then Strawberries.

    That's kinda what i was thinking. I just wanted to make sure :-D They are just the basic ones that you buy at a store nothing unusual.
    Thanks

    Don't forget to think about where the sun is when planting. I would suggest that you orientate your planting scheme to the sun primarily, as you don't want the sunlight to be blocked from reaching the lower plants.

    Well actually I did not think of that but as luck has it the way I planted them works out. The tall ones are not blocking the short ones.Well thanks, I will be thinking of that from now on.
