|Topic||How do I plan a garden?|
Develop a written plot plan (see below) for both your vegetable garden taking into account the need for crop rotation, and that often, cool season vegetables may still be in the ground and producing at the same time that you want to plant warm season vegetables.
A plot plan will also help if you want to grow in raised beds. Raised beds are great for growing a garden in areas with poor water drainage, and to keep the garden neat and tidy. If you can access the bed from both sides, the width of a raised bed should not be more than about 6 feet. If you only have access from one side, make the bed no wider than 3 feet. Otherwise, it can difficult to reach to the middle of the bed.
