The 2011 Veg Plan

I have already (I'm so organized this year!) put in almost all my vegetable seed orders, gone through my boxes of old seeds, and figured out what I am going to be growing. Here's what my current "To Grow" list looks like in the form of a mind map: (click to enlarge if you want to actually read it) (and don't make geek comments about me planning the garden this way... you know you are all just jealous with your lame spread sheets.)

SOOOO much fun! I'm going to have a truly outrageous amounts of green beans and peppers. Not to mention tomatoes. Yes, I only have 5 tomatoes listed, but 4 of those are breeding populations in progress, and I'd like to have at least 20 plants of each... Other fun things include trying to grow quinoa, my search for the prefect broccoli, and my various on-going corn breeding projects!
Next I have to figure out where I'm going to plant them all, and I start shopping for flowers and other pretty plants. Yay for planning season!

Awesome! I'm getting pretty close to making my seed orders too.

Let me know if you want to do any seed swapping!

Mr S.: Lol!

Green Zebra: I might have to take you up on that one...

Jeeze I feel like a lazy slob... of course it helps that I only have space for about 2 edible plants so my planning will probably consist of going to one greenhouse, getting one tomato and some other mystery plant and calling it a day... I'm not jealous of your giant plans or anything...

Are early beans and yummy beans disjoint sets?

I was sort of expecting a cartoon. A mind map will do, however.

You must have a very large garden! Or do you plan to annex the neighbors?

Greensparrow said...

Kat, cartoons are on Friday!

Wm, not fundamentally. It just so happens that my favorite tasting green beans are not very early. The other varieties I chose for their earliness, but I can't find any info on flavor, so I don't know. They may be yummy, but in all likelihood are merely average. They're for breeding, so I hope to produce a superlatively yummy AND early bean at some point.

I like it!

Wow, this is so impressive!

I was going to say you must be awfully hungry - or a hungry neighborhood - but if we are talking about breeding - of course you need a mind map.
