Garden Planning: Spring/Summer 2014

In the past couple of weeks we’ve been busy planning out our garden for Spring/Summer. We use Smart Gardener to help plan out the location of our plants as well as the schedule for planting everything! It makes the process a breeze and really low-stress.

We have seven 3×15′ raised beds which adds up to 315 sq/ft of planting space to fill up. It takes a matter of minutes to get it all laid out with Smart Gardener. It automatically lays out what should go where based on the sun, interactions with surrounding plants and crop rotation. So, highly recommended.

Here’s our plan for this Spring/Summer.
