Since certain squares will be ready for a new crop earlier than others, do you make your garden plan simply based on what you plant first. For example, if I wanted to plant spinach now and then beans in that spot after the spinach was done--how do I organize that in a plan?

Most the plans I see on this forum seem to just list a crop/square.

Such a great question. I hope to see the answers here, too. I have not tried to transition cool to warm season before. Let alone warm back to cool in autumn. I hope to figure something out, but some experienced SFG'ers' opinions would sure be welcomed by me.

I use the computer garden plans at the beginning to list my first crops.

This year I plan to make better use of my space. I also drew my garden beds on paper in squares large enuf to write in the crops. This plan goes in my garden notebook. My beds are listed as #1, #2, etc from left to right, front to back of the garden.

For some early crops like early spinach, early lettuce, bush beans, turnip....I place a line diagonally across from corner to corner and list a possible 2nd crop on the lower half of the square like fall broccoli, cauliflower, bush beans, fall spinach, fall greens.
A crop that takes a longer time to mature is followed by one that has a shorter maturing time.
That way when the first crop is harvested, I'll know what to put in its place.

Great question! I think the charts at the end of the book will help but for me it's more of a hands on thing that will help me understand the chart more.... As I've been going, I have the silly me moments afterwords when I reread the book and just now get what it was saying. I'd love to see how people who've been doing it plan it all out to really have a year long working garden.
