This is the first year I’ve planned out the garden area before planting… I still have to write a bit of a journal of sorts for what I’m doing and where, but I created a
to scale rough idea map of the space I have and where things will go. Kinda cool to see how it will all fit in here… I totally rearranged the garden this year too. I’m going to be trying to implement a Ruth Stout no till method from this point forward. The new row direction now flows with the wind, so my open pollination plants can self pollinate. You can click on the photo to view it larger, but then you’ll lose the what is where key below. lol Can’t win ’em all…

14. Salad Mix
• Just outside the garden this year, I will also be planting more cucumber, watermelon and pumpkin. An old timer in the area plants these outside his deer fencing, and the deer don’t bother them, so I’m trying it myself to see if I can get more out of the “outside” of my garden by not planting the space hogging pumpkins and melons there.
• Areas 14 through 18 are meant to be interchangeable in order to have rotation for lettuce, beans and peas all within a shaded area with similar sized planting spaces.
• #1 and #2 go back beside the rabbit hutch.
