This year, my plan is on one page :) The northeast corner of the garden is in the upper left hand corner. Nothing earth shatteringly different really. I think the biggest change is that the beans are back in the main garden and I'm planning on planting a significant amount of basil and placing it right where I tend to walk into the garden. Oh, and finally a dedicated herb garden over by the chicken run - I'm not waiting any longer to decide where the right place is. Hopefully once the perennial herbs establish themselves (I'll fence it off while they get started) the chickens will have little effect on them. I'm thinking the usuals - sage, oregano, marjoram, chives, thyme (of a couple varieties), fennel, dill, summer savory, borage, mint (in pots of course to avoid the spread)....
Why so much basil? Because I simply adore the stuff and love walking through the garden smelling it in the air. (I'm thinking of making a super stock pile of pesto for us to enjoy all winter long). And I know others love it too - I wanna spread the love!
My approach on gardening is to plant enough for friends, family, bugs, critters and our family.
I am considering growing the beans and squash over tunnels I make from livestock panels this year, if I can swing the expense of the panels. I think it would look neat, provide additional shade and overhead protection for the poultry and make it a cinch to harvest when the time comes. We'll see! Only a few more months to go!
