How do you plan your garden?
Computer, notebook paper, graph paper?
Grasping at straws here and looking for a better way to plan. I've got it mapped out on paper, but as you know, not everything is planted at the same time and some things you plant twice or more and some will stay on for what it seems is forever and still others you plant after some other things are done....I don't know if I need to color code with dates, draw a new map for every 3-4 weeks and color code new plantings/vs old or what!?
I suppose I'm driving myself crazy over nothing, but I really want to get a better way of organizing. The man had some of my garden drawing papers in his hand and asked if I needed them. At first, I was indignant. "Of course I needed them!" I fussed, "I made specific references on them which I had changed and put new notations which weren't working so I changed them again which worked perfectly until last week when I gave up on that paper to start a new one, so I guess no. I don't need it. Throw it out."
My memory is not the best. I can't rely on keeping up with planting dates and what will be planted where when what's done just by memory. Looking to see how you guys plan, draw, and keep up with planting dates and limit my use of little pieces of paper that float around the house and such before I get divorced.
Anyone know of a garden calendar out there that looks like graph paper in the middle and edged with lines on the ends? Something like that would be optimal!!
