Here is the layout of the First Vegetable Garden via TheWhoFarm who petitioned hard to make it reality. I’m not so sure about the variety myself, but it was probably very well considered on the basis of climate, usability and maybe even potager-looks. It will be great to follow the progress.

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, was also an avid gardener and some of his garden notes have been electronically archived. Here is a page to marvel at:
