How to maximize garden yields with a crop plan

Here’s how a crop plan can reduce work & help you get more fresh produce out of even the smallest garden…

Now that the summer garden season is over…it’s time to start planning for next year’s garden!  🙂

Now is the time to reflect (and make notes) on what went well in your garden this year, and what didn’t meet expectations. Now is also a good time to draw out next season’s garden plan for proper crop rotation, while the location of all of this year’s garden crops is still fresh in your mind.

Using a crop plan, as described in the video below, is a great way to manage your garden planning. It helps to minimize wasted space in your garden, reduce the time you will need to spend on maintenance tasks like weeding, and maximize your garden harvest.

A detailed plan like the one shown below can be put together in an afternoon – and once you’ve designed your perfect crop plan, you can re-use it year after year. It works in any climate and growing conditions, and will help remind you throughout the season what to plant and where, when to harvest, and what garden tasks need to be done when. This is also an extremely helpful method for those with limited garden space, as it completely eliminates wasted space, and helps you get so much more out of the space you have.

You may be shocked to find how much more productive your garden is – Stacey found that she was able to double her harvest – while actually working less on her garden!

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
