Crop rotation chart.

Crop rotation chart.

No mention about the weather only cold,wet,and a little windy.Nothing managed to get doing out in the vegetable garden,the greenhouse or garden shed this evening.I put down some new floor covering in the seed room.Handy to have,and can be washed out every night.Over the next few evenings i will sort the washing of seed trays etc to put into place there.This evening i looked through the companion planting chart for a brief while to check on some of the beneficial and the antagonistic garden friends,what repels or deter in some ways and the help with vegetables in improving the soil.I took a picture of the chart this evening that contains a mixture made from 110 vegetables,herbs,and fruits.The names are fairly small to fit all on the chart..

John, I am going to have to be carfull, Maria is wondering about me and this site etc. If she caught site of me washing pot or seed trays, that would be that, committed and key thrown away.

Fran you could always say to Maria that,if im good to the trays,the trays will be good to me for growing things.

110 listed - my goodness.  Do you ever give courses on vegetables, herbs and fruits?

I have washed my pots and stored them in my new shed for the first time this year, that may because I now have space or it may be the influence of this site, I have uped my act! they used to be thrown in to an old bin in the corner of the garden before.

You're so organised... Incredible! I'm really looking forward to reading your journals next year!

What teeny, tiny writing and what a lot you've fitted in there.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 25 November 2009 22:15:17

Thanks everyone.

Mairin,i dont know about given them,it would be more like me wanting a course or two.

Tiny all right Rachel,with even a mention of some marigolds and morning glory.

I will be watching over some journals also Yuko.
