OK, so I believe in the idea of planning your work and working your plan. What I am planning is probably 175 degrees different from what I have done it the past, and for the first time, I'm not thinking just about next year's harvest. Some of the plants will take 2, maybe 3 years to be productive
I'll try to paint a picture of my garden.
Two Dwarf Apple Trees - My Greenhouse
A row of blackberries
Three rows of strawberries
Three rows of Sweet Potatoes
Two rows of White Potatoes
A row of broccoli
A row of peppers, tomatoes
A row of carrots
Each row is about 35-40 feet long
Along the west side of the house, I will have two pear trees and a sweet cherry tree. In the front yard, one sweet and two North Star Cherry trees (all the fruit trees are dwarf varieties).
Plus, I will have 16,000+ sq. ft. to raise tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, lettuce, Chard, Beans, Peas, Onions and Squash, mostly to sell in another location. Not to mention, a 168 sf raised bed to grow some other things.
I wish it was the first of March instead of the first of January!
