i have a small bed 4 foot by three foot can i grow carrots and leeks together in this bed.



That may be difficult as leeks need plenty of feeding- they put a lot of growth on in a short time. Carrots need fertile soil, but not feeding.

As the bed is so small and carrots and leeks are cheap to buy, I would go for French beans or just one courgette plant followed by perhaps regular sowings of lettuce as they will be the most productive use of the space.
