As I mentioned in a previous post, I plan to add a little more space to the garden this year. The raised beds numbered 10, 11 and 12 will be new this year. Last year I added 7, 8 and 9. (But they were numbered differently.)
The plan in the graphic rotates every crop to a new place. I have kept track of where I have grown everything for the last 2 seasons (since starting) and I’m making sure that I won’t move them back to the same place until after the third year.
I am also going to start a second compost area this spring as soon as I can get out there. It makes sense to have one pile composting while adding to another one.
If this goes as planned, the garden will have expanded to 428 square feet this year. I’m still not making enough compost even to amend my existing beds, let alone to fill up three new ones. I’ll buy bagged stuff 3 for $5 again this year…probably enough to squat the van 2 or 3 times.
