Now that our raised beds are ready, we have decided to plant one bed a month. Ideally, one should plant a bed a week, but the monthly schedule seemed more doable. Let’s see how it works out.
At first it looked depressingly like Mohenjodaro, but now it’s sprung to life. In fact, our many visitors have been telling us it’s overcrowded and we shouldn’t have planted so many varieties in such a small space. Yes, we were greedy, but we’ll do better with the next one. Watch our progress!
And this is the planting plan, painstakingly done in accordance with companion planting guidelines. Who knew, for instance that the beans family and the onion family had to be kept in a state of apartheid?
Unfortunately, the grand plan went off the rails here and there, with so many eager helping hands and so little faith in our expertise. That’s understandable, but what with the mixing-up, some unfamiliar plants like kale, and the weeds, we’re playing some guessing games with that short jungle. As, I guess, some of my readers will be doing with my trilingual plan. Sorry, it was meant for our eyes only, or I would have made a better job of it. Feel free to write in for a translation.
