Last year was the first year we started gardening at our new home. Our soil is quite rocky on our property so we decided to plant our vegetable garden in raised beds. We also utilized the square foot gardening method. One thing is for sure, we didn’t plan our garden very well last year as we were busy with so many other things, not to mention a trip to Disney World right in the middle of planting season. This year, though, is different.
Last year we started with 4 – 12’x4′ raised beds. This year we are adding 2 more beds and we’ve taken the time to layout and diagram our garden for each raised bed. I think this will not only help us during planting, but also help us in logging data with regards to the garden. The software I used to diagram the layout is called Dia. It’s an open source software application that you can use on your Linux or Windows computer for free.
