I did't do the best job of planning out my garden last year and it got really messy when our vegetables started budding. We could not tell what was a weed and what was a veggie.
This year I decided to put more effort into organizing my garden before I planted.
I started with some of the seedlings that I started to cultivate early in egg cartons and also the seeds that I had. I then made a diagram of approximately where things were going to be planted.
Here are the peppers that I started sprouting. I don't think that there is any benefit to doing this unless you have a very well rooted seedling.
Here is my garden all planted. You can't see anything is some parts because those are the seeds. I made sure to water the first watering very thoroughly. Keep your diagram somewhere handy if you have questions about weeds or what things may be. I am also going to go back in and add markers for each plant.
Now come the hardest part... just waiting on Mother Earth.
