Here is a small update- this is my plan, I use excel so I can make a square and then colour code different parts of the cells to represent the vegetables. This way I can visually plan ahead and see how it plays out.

I have always tried to squeeze in as much as I can. I then make sure that my beds do get a rest and a feed ( compost, cow poo). Each Winter time their is resting spots and some empty space, but come summer and I can never have enough bed space. I use my fathers space as well. I have planted a lot of spuds at his property in Sale. Beautiful rich soil. We will of course share in the spoils.

Winter Garden 2015

The Plan ahead- August and I have planted my Spuds- September will come everything else. This will help guide me, I usually try to rotate the major crops around. Corn and Tomatos were in different beds than they will go into. I really need acres of space, but is it worth locking myself into a grind wheel of work, work, and work. I need a life in there somewhere as well. If I really think about the intention of this blog was to show that you can grow a heap of a normal size block and substitute it from the wilds of gippsland- Hence the name!!!.

    Very organised! I presume the asparagus stays in place. always have the best intentions then end up planting. I do plant green manure in a couple of beds and rotate which ones each winter. Very heavy on the mustard greens for sanitising the soil.
