When I say gardening, I mean vegetables. I intend to include fruit and a little about flowers here, but my main interest is vegetables.
My vegetable garden consists of four raised beds. Each bed is planted with related vegetables (and a few herbs). Every year, I plant each bed with a different family of vegetables (crop rotation) to try to break disease and pest cycles. In such a small space, this may not be all that effective.
The four beds this year, from the back of the garden, will have:
Four: cabbage family, including cabbages, radishes, cauliflowers, kale, and mustard greens
Three: tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers
Two: beans and peas on a shared trellis, and annual herbs including basil, cilantro, and marjoram
One: everything else; okra, chard, beets, carrots, onions, and lettuce
You may notice that there are no cucurbits (squash, melon, or cucumber). This is because those crops succumb to disease in my garden every year and I am taking a break from trying to grow them.
The next step is to determine which seeds I need to order. Since I keep seeds in the refrigerator, they remain viable for several years. I need to go through my collection of seeds and find which are in short (or no) supply. I also like to check the seed catalogs for new varieties that might work well for me.
