With the season winding down plans for next seasons garden have been whirling in my mind. My main though was everything needs to be rotated because of this seasons blight problem. Last week I decided to do a preliminary plan on Paint to get all my thoughts on a hard copy before I forgot them. The plans below are basically how the garden will be laid out next year although I am sure a few things will change before spring planting. I may also do a raised triangular bed at the lower part of garden. This would tap out every available spot and would mean a few things will be moved around.Lowest Beds
Above is a crude rendition of my new bed ideas for next season.
- The square one in the top right is going to be a stone edged, amended native soil bed. It will happen next spring and will be used to grow about 16 potato plants. The little stone circle will stay, there is an existing 'Valentine' Rhubarb plant growing there.
- The triangular-ish bed is a thought I have had since last season. This area receives good light from spring - mid summer but when the sun lowers it is almost 100% shade from the hedge. I have not decide if I will do this bed yet but the added space would be nice. The main draw is restricted access really, I will have to string it out first to see how intrusive it is. If it is installed, it will be a raised bed like the others, with triple mix to the depth of 16-18 inches.
