Where The Dust Settles

April 29, 2013

Each season’s final planting schemes are usually a combination of careful planning and haphazard shoe-horning into invented space; this year is no different.

“Careful planning”…… oh really?

OK, maybe not careful, but there is some planning that goes into it each year.

Evidence lies below, click for detail:

Always a work in progress here….

I’ll lean heavily on the damage and delays caused by the storm as my excuse for 2013’s shortcomings even if my usual procrastination and miscalculations are the true causes. While reviewing the format of the pictures I already see a handful of omissions, but somehow most all of it will grow and produce. Again.

The good news is that finally, going into in our 5th successive season of adding beds, we have sufficient space to grow all we want/need and then some without perfect planning and execution.

    Well, I have poster board above my freezer drawn out of all my raised beds and I pencil in my choices each year. A large white board may come into play later. Good to see everything going well

      A white board is a good idea, but Excel keeps the grid for me, grubby notes manually entered keep it “updated”. With so many odd beds in odd orientations I like to be able to tote the map around with me when planning/documenting etc

      I have to have it with me or I forget it in the time it takes to walk in
