In the dark cold months of a New England winter, there is little to do except plan for next years garden. We have an extra bad case of garden fever this year, and since we have had varying levels of success with gardening over the last few years, we have decided to go all in (and turn it into a parking area if we fail again).
First we tested our soil. PH is just slightly alkaline, nitrogen is low, phosphorous is just right, and potash is non-existent.
Next we procured an enormous pile of seeds. All the usual stuff: tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans, broccoli, peas, cucumbers, etc.
Next we plotted our garden. What will go where, in what quantities, paying attention to what was there last year. Drawing is to scale as this is a household with an engineer.
Now if only.....
