    That’s the type of graph I’ve been looking for a long time. But I need to say this:

    For some parts of the graph, it’s really confusing to know where the Xs are supposed to be meaning for each vegetable.

    David Gosselin

    What are these X’s supposed to mean? What % of N, what % of Pho, what % Pot Is optimal for each veg. is req’d? How about some simple language.

    The formatting is stuffed. Impossible to read table, sadly.

      Updated the table. Doing tables in WP is challenging for me.
