Post First Timer needs objective look! 
This is my first shot at growing something in 20 years, how does my 15X15 plot check out? Good, bad, otherwise?

Post Garden suggestions. 
A garden with good soil and items planted at the right time will do well, then it is only a matter of tweaking things to make it better.

Your brocolli needs to be planted first, so it is good to have it near the edge.

I don't know where the sun tracks across the garden, but your tomatoes will enjoy full sun, yet they have tall sunflowers on one side and tall corn on the other side.

Another thought is that corn will need lots of nitrogen and you normally need to add some during the growing season, unless you have very rich soil. Tomatoes like and use lots of nitrogen too, but they need to have less of it as the season progresses so the produce fruit and not big leafy vines.

Keep a lot of your results in your daily log and you will start to learn about your soil and conditions. It really helps to review going back to past years and seeing what worked and didn't work.



Happy Gardening.
