What crops do you plant bio-intensively?
I want to start a discussion / survey of what folks are growing bio-intensively in their gardens. So what is growing these days and what are the results so far? What is your bed size and the spacing between plants? What would you change?

Nice photos. I'd just like to draw attention to the man who basically brought organic gardening to North America, Alan Chadwick. He started a demonstration garden at the University of California back in 1967 which has inspired thousands of organic gardeners up to the present. His project is now called the Center for Agroecology there at UCSC. Photos of that program, Chadwick's techniques, recorded lectures, etc. can be found here:
A great resource for all those who are interested in highly productive, organic gardening and farming methods. But perhaps more inportant in the long run is Chadwick's general outlook on life. Both are essential.
Specific discussion on his gardening tecniques, which he called the Biodynamic French Intensive method, can be found hee:
Would love to see some pix of your vertical structures.
All the best,
