2011 Gardening Plan

I've posted the 2011 garden plan to the blog.  Full details can be found by clicking the Landscape link under Features in the left-side navigation or by clicking here.

This year I've been using an online program called to build garden plans.  This software allows you to easily draw on various plant varieties, and it will automatically calculate the number of plants in a specific area.  I have found that it does not follow bio-intensive plant densities, which I generally use.  I have found using bio-intensive planting useful to reduce weeds.  In addition, the program allows for successive garden planing and much more.  A friend of mine and co-blogger at has been collaborating with me on a seed and plant order list using Google Docs, which is another great garden planning tool.  Using Google Docs, we can complete our plant list, and then decide who should start what what since greenhouse/coldframe/windowsill space is limited.
