Vegetable Garden - The Plan
Taking into account crop rotation, space constraints, the number of cauliflowers we can actually eat and so on, we have produced this plan for the vegetable crops in the first half of this year. Now I need to check what seeds we have already and get the ones we haven't got. I'm planning to sow some peppers and chillies next weekend, a bit earlier than usual, but this year I'm hoping to sow everything a little earlier to give a longer growing and fruiting season.
This plan doesn't include the herb and salad beds, which I usually sow in succession with whatever I feel like through the season. This year I have red and green leaves, rocket, spinach and mustard. I'm thinking of getting a big cloche for the salads in the first few months.
