It's good to have a plan...

I thought it would be useful to have a garden calender with things to be done each month specifically for my garden, given what we like to eat and our climate, which tends to be quite cool. Not that I'll actually do everything listed, but one can always have a goal, eh?

  1. Hi Christine, This looks great and I look forward to seeing your crop rotation plan! I will use this alot so thanks. And you blog looks fantastic. I really like the way you write and I love the moon phases box which I really want to put on fire in mind, I just have to find some connection between fire and the moon phases.

    It is inspiring.

  2. Aww, thanks Kate! You are very kind. Re. the moon box, it would be very interesting if fires did usually start around particular phases of the moon, wouldn't it. Something to investigate perhaps.. Nice to have you pop by :-)
