Succession Planting Guide

Post  quiltbea on 3/25/2011, 11:33 am

To get the most out of your garden, it would help to know which crops to plant after the first early one is harvested.
I found this Sucession Planting Guide at Johnnyseeds on Google and thought it might help.
I printed it for myself for using this year.

http://growingideas.johnnyseeds.com/2008/06/succession-planting-guide.html

I hope this helps someone else.

Vegetable Garden Design for Four Seasons

Post  FamilyGardening on 2/27/2014, 12:06 am

bumping this thread as we are researching how to have a 4 season garden Smile

This vegetable garden design is suited for USDA Hardiness Zones 5 and 6, but can be adapted for Zones 4 and 7.

From Mother Earth [url=news:http://www.motherearthnews.com/organic-gardening/vegetable-garden-design.aspx]News:http://www.motherearthnews.com/organic-gardening/vegetable-garden-design.aspx[/url]

hope it helps.....spring and fall share squares, and summer and winter share squares.......I know there shall be some adjustments with permanent trellis, zones and such...but with some adaptions.....its a start   Very Happy 

example of spring and fall:

Plant early peas followed by replanted Cabbage in July
Plant spinach followed by replanted Broccoli
Plant lettuce followed by replanted Carrots

example for summer and winter:

plant Tomatoes followed by replanted of Chinese cabbage
plant Green beans followed by replanted Corn salad or lettuce
Sweet peppers followed by replanted Kale

hope it helps

I don't garden in winter, but my growing season (weather dependent of course) can realistically extend from mid to late March through late Oct/early Nov.  A couple of years ago I sat down with the ANSFG book and a calendar and made out my own succession planting schedule for what I grow.  I have used it for 2 years with some refinements but that works well for me.  
I used the 50% spring frost date as a starting point and ending point, and kept our traditional mid May date for the cold sensitive plants.

Me, either, herblover, but I did read through my library, and just bought Eliot Coleman's "4 Season Harvest". So much good stuff in there, also a lot of things that I will never care about, but that is all books I think.

Last year, as my start up year, and kind of a lark, ended up so positively despite my lack of planning! This year, at least I have planned to the level of my ability to do so! LOL!

Also, goal: Cold frame for this Fall. Got myself a drill/driver for Christmas, and am going to use that little Black and Decker!
