P:106 Planting and Planning

Whatever I lack in knowledge, I hope to compensate with planning. Then the rest is simply doing and trying and watching the one's who seem to know.

During this community effort I have been ahead of the pack on getting things down on paper. My object is primarily to communicate because I do this best on paper (or virtual paper) and secondarily I know the value of a record. I don't believe that anyone can carry around 1,000 sf of garden decisions in his or her head.

Come next fall - for the fall planting - we will have an annotated landscape plan to guide us for the next season's planting, and the next.

Teh plan here is only about a third of the garden beds to be planted. I need to get out there and get to work. I woke in the middle of the night wide awake. So, I worked on this and fell back asleep at dawn for another 5 hours! This will be one crazy Earth Day for me.

The whole thing is about 550 sf, but one whole bed at least the size of the central one is not showing here.

We gave several more small patches which add up to about 1,000 sf total.
