Today, I drew out my vegetable garden plans for this year. Last year, my son installed three raised vegetable beds for his grateful mother.
This year we are adding three more beds. However, we have to start with a plan. So I drew up this new plan.
I am planting one and a half beds of tomatoes, a bed of peppers.
Expanding into carrots, peas and green beans.
I laid out the dates for germination, time to maturity and the best time for planting. I mapped out on a calender to sow seeds in the ground and the greenhouse.
Now, the next step is to determine what varieties I want to plant and to check for any changes in germination, etc.
I also made a list of any garden supplies I may need.
I have decided to use a cold frame for lettuces this spring.
I am also either going to make this composter or buy it.
Pretty soon, my garden will look like this.... from last year.
Next steps, order seeds, clean out greenhouse and check garden equipment. I will keep you posted.
