We grow 2000 +/- square feet of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers in several large garden areas. We use only organic growing methods and 95% of our seeds are organic (the few that are not are seeds from family farms that, though not certified organic, do not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides in their growing practices).

Garden planning for the 2018 season has begun! I used to map out my garden on graph paper but realized this year that I could plan it more efficiently (especially given all the changes I make in planning before planting!) using Google Sheets. Such a revelation! To be planted this year (so far! I’m sure I’ll be adding more):
