my plan is to grow tomatoes where the peas are now.

otherwise, really don't have a plan. last year we just kind of winged it - when something was done, we put something else in the square. seemed to work.

i really do need to sit down and figure out realistically where i want my hot weather crops though and keep those squares open - i worry that first crops won't be 'done' when those are time to plant - tomatoes, peppers, melons, etc. but the rest of the beds, i really don't care what goes in each square.

although i DID buy some flower bulbs yesterday - i think it'll be a hoot to have some gladiolus' in a few squares - and will make it REAL easy to dig up at season's end to put away for winter - all the other bulbs i've planted in the past i never had teh 'oomph' to dig up as i'm supposed to and many of them are dead. (i guess?)

do share your grid plans - i love learning from other folks.

Plan? What's that?!

I'm a 'garden by the seat of my pants' kinda guy, I keep notes on plant markers and seed packages.

But I do grow enough of 5-6 different veggies that I put up to last us through the winter.

Post  Patty from Yorktown 3/17/2010, 7:20 pm

Hi,

I sort of have a plan. I have sets of plants that I like together. I have 15 tomato cages and I will not be planting more than 15 tomato plants. I will resist the lure of the garden center! I am planting 16 squares of bush beans and several plants/types of vining beans. I always try something new or novel for the kids. This year it will be bird house gourds and 10' sunflowers, plus the bean tepee. I hope to have an other huge vining zucchini. Mostly I am trying to learn how much of what our family will eat and plant that. I try to plot things out, but it rarely happens until after the seeds are in the ground. Oh I am also planting a ton of lettuce and salad greens, plus peas. I guess my plan is to resist the glossy garden catalogs. It is not going so well this year.

I'm thinking your speaking of Crop rotation to help help maintain the proper nutrients in the soil year after year....

I believe somewhere in the newest edition of the book, mel says you really don't have to do that because when you replace a harvested plant or crop, you replace that plants "Used" real estate (Soil) with a handful or trowelful of new compost...

If I'm wrong please correct my assumption....

Oh boy...a plan... I try to sit down with my calendar and plan out what should go where and I get OVERWHELMED! I think I'll just wing it until I'm better at this whole gardening thing.
