2016 Plan Comments

This is the second year planning Fran's Victory Garden with the GrowVeg Garden Planner.

The big change is the large plot by the deck will be filled with trellises diagonally situated so they face south. The garden is located on a squarish piece of land where the corners of the square point toward the points of the compass. With the trellises diagonal to the square they will be facing straight south. In the past, the trellises would be at an angle to the sun and the phototropic nature of plants would pull the plants to the southern corner.

Also, this year the cabbages and cauliflowers are going in tunnels right from the get-go. Yeah, lets beat those cabbage worms.

Another big improvement this year is edging for the plots, in the past the dirt had a way of migrating onto the pavers, dirty.

    I got some nice tomato plants and peppers from Mr. Bob today. I may have to do something to protect them if my chipmunk visits again. Thanks Farmer Bob!
