How many plants should I start for a 4 x 12 raised bed?

Don't know how many rows, but I've planted them 3 to 4 inches apart on doubled rows or staggered style.

Have done 3 rows in a "row" and then left space for me to get in to pick them, about 3 feet.

A 4 foot wide, you won't need the walkway, though. so fill in that way, too. Maybe do a 4 to 6 inch spacing in staggered rows so you can get some air in there, but shade out weeds.

Thanks imp. I think I'll plant a row on each side of the bed. That will give the row 3' spacing.
I'll plant them 3 inches apart. It's hard for me to reach the middle of the bed. I'm 5'5, so my
arms don't go that far.
