Consecutive Plantings

Because it is winter here in the Southern Hemisphere there are many days that go by that we cannot work in the garden. So on some of those days I plan my consecutive plantings.

The reason you need to do this is so that you do not get an overload of things ripening or needing harvesting at the same time.

So what I did was print off some blank calendars and then noted the date of first planting and the estimated harvesting date (look on the back of your seed packet). Then I also write the date to germination which is the date that I will plant a second set and so on.
