The plot thickens.
Just looked through my seed packets and decided roughly what’s going where at the allotment. I hope to have some potatoe bags dotted around the plot as well. Thinking of giving sweet potatoes a bash this year too. Vegetables I am trying for the first time are broad beans, butternut squash and spinach. Because of past failures, leeks and celery are only maybes for this year. I may grow lettuce, salad leaves, spring onions and herbs in the garden at home. Oh yeah, and I might try growing mushrooms in coffee grounds… It’s all a bit sketchy!
Well that makes it flexible as it should be.
I have no doubt there will be a few tweaks here and there!
Don’t you feel good when you plan and organise your plot. Just have to wait now patiently to get started!
Yeah it feels great and not long to wait before my broad beans go in and potatoes soon after!
Good luck realizing your vision, Val!
Thanks Hook, I do hope it turns out better than the sketch though!
nice plan, much neater than mine so far…..
You’ll have one soon I’m sure!
Wow – awesome plan – sketchy is best! Very inspiring stuff and we’re off to the garden centre to look at potato varieties after lunch! Can’t wait to start it all off. Keep up the good work.
Thanks and good luck with the potato shopping!
How big is that plot? Also jealous of your water collection as it almost never rains here in So Cal during the growing season.
100 Square Metres! Don’t be jealous of the water collection because it’s still in the planning stages!
meters wth is that lol is that like a 100 yards? the size of a football field? I mean soccer pitch, I think thats what you call it
duh,,,,,,, I just read the title of your blog 🙂
10mtrs x 10mtrs which is roughly 12yrds x 12yrds.
The size of football field?… now that would make me a farmer!
And yeah, we just call it football over here or “The Beautiful Game”.
It looks all very techincal, especially the “water collecting thingy” Excellent planning, can’t believe the variety of things you manage to plant in your plot!
I think the graph paper makes it look technical – when it’s really not. The ‘water collection thingy’ is a work in progress… at the moment it’s just a mound of sods. I hope it works! Thanks for visiting!
Looks sketchy, but fantastic. I can’t wait to have a yard and garden of my own. I am going to grow some lettuce in window boxes this year. Hope I don’t kill it.
You’ll do fine I’m sure with your lettuce. Your blog looks great… I’ll wander over later for a proper look! Thanks for dropping by!
Brilliant sketch Val.
How will you possibly remember where everything is if you manage to loose that slip of paper.
Well Dave, I have scanned it, printed out a copy, and it’s in the blogosphere! I can’t possibly lose it now… can I?
Computer crashes and you wash the jeans with the sketch in the back pocket on the same day, you need more back-ups. Ha.
Jungle 1 is brilliant! Amazing depth of field there. Looks like the rhubarb is doing well.
Thanks for that… yeah, the rhubarb is happy as Larry.
Very excited to see how your butternut squash turns out. I wish I could grow some! 🙂
Me too, I love butternut squash!
Very interested to hear how you go with the mushrooms in coffee grounds. Best of luck with it.
Thanks Shane. I need to do a bit more research on the matter but here is a link to where I got the idea!
