The veggie garden 2010-Part 4 (Planning)

This is one of those posts that has been languishing in the "draft" stage for a while. Some of the pictures of our planning were stuck in our home computer that was out of commission for a few months.

This year, Spring and Summer of 2010 has been one fraught with trouble. All our planning and prep work was tossed out the door.

Our bible for planning the veggie garden was the Santa Clara County Master Gardener resources and especially their planting calendar.

So off we went starting our seeds in pots and fretting that we probably started a week or two late.

Weather played spoil sport with our the end of May and we still were having night time temperatures below 50 degrees.

We put together some planting plans based on "Edward Smiths's book"

Here are some of our plans

Plan 1
Plan 2

Plan 3

Plan 4

What we did not plan for was the bad weather and that many of our seeds might not germinate.

We have learnt a lot from what we did (and did not do) in our veggie garden planning this year, and we are hoping to do better next year.
