2014 Garden

It might be a little early to start planning my 2014 garden but oh well 🙂

This years garden is going to be better planned then last years! This year I am using a planning website that I found last year but didn’t use.

Garden Planning
P
ros: You can make your own! They also have pre planned gardens available for you to use if you have empty yard to use. I have raised garden beds so not so much an option for me. This website also helps you not over crowded your garden space!

Cons: The only con I can see from using it for my purposes is a lack of vegetables and herbs. They only list the biggest most usually ones and not all possible options.

I
 love these two documents! They worked good for my beginner uses last year and I have done better with my planning this using them. They nice thing about them is that it really does help and there is a science behind these. The science is that some plants consume more of a particular nutrient out of the soil and release a nutrient into the soil and if you plant an opposite plant in the same area together they benefit each other and produce a better yield. Yes, it takes a little work to use the tables together with your garden planning but they higher yield payoff is great!

So this year I am going to plant: 2 tomatoes plants, carrots, onions, garlic, basil, pumpkins, strawberries, lettuce, corn, rosemary, broccoli, and potatoes. Wow, typing that out makes it sound like a lot! Here is what I came up with using the above websites for my planting plots (feel free to copy these if any of them meet your own needs 🙂 ) Each square is equal to a single square foot.

2014 Garden Beds

Just need to figure out when to start my seedlings and to prep my beds for them!

Enjoy!
