Fishy's Vegetable Garden

Fishy planted his mountain garden late in May when the snow finally melted. He planted five different vegetables, Tomatoes, Peppers, Radishes, Lettuce, and Broccoli. For each he planted a different number of rows from one to five. The hard work involved with each planting was accomplished on a separate day, from May 25th to May 30th ( On Sunday May 26th he didn't work in the garden. ) Each vegetable was planted in a different part of the garden, the north end, the south side, the east side, the west side or the northwest corner. Can you tell which vegetable was planted in each part of the garden, the day planted and the number of rows?

1. Fishy turned the soil for the peppers three days after he dug hand-size rocks out of the radish patch. Fishy's bright rows of radishes went deeper than the broccoli but were not as deep as the tomatoes. Fishy rolled his trusty wheelbarrow into the west end of the garden one day before he planted the broccoli.  Fishy believes the morning sun is bad for tomatoes and so kept those plants out of the eastern side of his garden
Plant Rows Planted Location




















2. Fishy labored hard in the south side of the garden and was mighty proud of the three perfect rows there. On one week's last day, Fishy planted the east side of the garden. Fishy didn't put the peppers nor the tomatoes in the northwest corner. Fishy planted an even number of rows in the Northwest corner of his garden.

3.Fishy planted three rows before he planted two rows, but planted them after he planted four rows. Fishy figured the lettuce wouldn't last long so he planted fewer than three rows. Fishy planted the south garden one day before he planted the lettuce. Fishy planted more rows of peppers than he did broccoli( which was not planted in the west side of the garden and was not planted the 29th.)
