|List of seeds I want to plant|
How do I plan my garden? Well I'm super spoiled by my hubby, whenever I say I want a seed. It comes. (He loves it because they are only a few dollars. I love the surprise they make me feel special. ) I have all the seeds in two boxes.
First thing I do is make a list of the seeds I have and where I want to plant them. That took 2 days!
|My Row f Beans and I want to plant Kale in between|
Then I look up companion plants to the plants I'm planting. In this side of garden I'm planting beans. I research companion plant to beans and found a long list on about.com http://organicgardening.about.com/od/vegetablesherbs/p/beancompanions.htm and pick kale to plant with my beans. This works out great because I want sure where I was going to plant the kale! I am so happy. Then I lay out the seeds. So I can see what I'm planting.
|The pink are Pink Lemonade blueberries and blue are my blueberry bushes then I want to plant Rasberry Lemnade Zinna in between|
After that I lay out the outside of the left side of the fence. This is a little easier because I have berries planted on the fence. I have 3 regular blueberry bushes and I bought 2 pink lemonade blueberry bushes to plant. In between the bushes I'm plant on planting Raspberry lemonade zinnia plants. I am planting them for 2 reasons. One is they are awesome cutting flowers and I saved the seeds so they should grow awesome this year. The second reason is to bring helpful bugs into the garden.
|All my seeds together|
Then I look at them together. I get so excited. I plan on planting this weekend, I bagged them up so they are ready for me to plant this weekend!
How do you get ready to plant you garden?
