There are 6 crop squares in Mars Base Zero. Although they were
designed to be 12' by 12', (3.65 meter), the final size is up to 1.5 '

the north-western corner (ie upper left if you are looking at a diagram

is the northern center square, D is to the south of that. E is
the north-eastern corner, and F is the south eastern corner.
We wrote a description and history about the squares:

- 1999: square D planted in potatoes
- 2000: fallow (not planted)
- 2001: fallow (not planted)
- 2003: fallow (not planted)
