Just wanted to share with all of you how my garden planning is going.
This is my overly ambitious garden layout. Hopefully it should link to the graphic in my Google docs. If not, let me know. Each bed is 12'x4' and there are 40 beds. That ends up being 1920 square feet of actual gardening space in a total garden space of 54x54'.
L feels that, if we practice some intensive gardening methods, we can grow all or most of our food in a garden this size. I hope I'm safe in my assumption that that's measuring the entire garden?
The plan easily breaks up into either 4 or 8 ... oh, heck, even 40, but that's overkill ...separate plots for crop rotation. I'm still trying to figure out how to organize it. L suggested strongly that we plant squash on the outside of the bed, so we might do Three Sisters hills.
I also need room set aside for perennial herbs and fruit.
