Grow Your Own Year Planner

31 December 2009 20:53:27

In the January issue of the Gardeners' World magazine, there is a pullout year planner for growing your own vegetables.  It is set out in columns -

(a)   Crop name, details as to how to sow, distance when planting out, suitable conditions, and fertilizer requirements. 

(b)  Varieties

(c)  Months of the year, with sowing, planting and harvesting highlighted

Details of thirty different vegetables are set out; two of which are tomatoes - greenhouse and outdoor.


For me, while I have no intention of planting all 30 different vegetables, this is an excellent planner as everything is set out in a very clear manner.  I will be copying this and putting it up on one of the walls in the kitchen.
