This Years Plot Plan

The weather continues to be a real pain down here in Essex. Today for instance, 5 degrees, a lot of rain, sun and hail all in one day. Over the Easter weekend thinks are not looking much better.

No spuds in yet, nothing uncovered and nothing directly sown still. We have the spuds and some asparagus crowns to go in, but not a lot of point if they will just rot. We are getting behind. Our pot sown broads need to go out over Easter ideally as they are getting pot bound.

So as an 'inside' job I've done this years plot plan. I've switched the rotation slightly from last years as the brassicas weren't following the beans correctly, something that is quite easy when you aren't growing full beds of something. The plan usually ends up about 85% correct by the end of year. 

It may seem a bit of over kill but I find it helps when planting things at different times.

Happy gardening folks!

We are in the same boat. Is yours a Growveg plan? We use them and like how it remembers where things have grown in the past and warns against repeating too soon.

Hi Sue

Nothing that complicated, just good old MS Paint and some copy and pasting! Even planned a kitchen with it once. Broads are going in tomorrow whether they like it or not
