Planning The Garden Layout.

I had mentioned last year that there were a couple of things I was going to change in my planting design this year.

I decided that I wanted to sketch things out so that my time spent planting was a little more organized.

Here is what I'm thinking about doing!  If you are an experienced gardener and see any errors in my plans....please let me know!  All feedback  is welcomed!

I've got my vine plants like zucchini and cucumber placed against the outside wire fence so that they can climb....and I'm not going to overcrowd this year.

I did some minor rotating of the plants to make sure that there is a difference in the nutrients being leached from the soil (though I will admit that I didn't do enough research on this yet). There will definitely be trial and error on this, but I like that!

I'm growing Jalapeno's and Carrots, which I didn't do last year....and then I took eggplant off the garden plot.  I might try it in containers instead.  They didn't work out so well last year in the garden.

Happy Gardening!


  1. This is very helpful! I need to plot out some things before I start digging.

    What are the big rectangles?

  2. The rectangles are the bricks I put in there so that I can walk through! They help a lot when it's really muddy or when the seeds are young and I don't want to trample them :)
