LOL!  Both ways sound fun but I think Miz Anne's is more whimsical.  I'm having to 
chart mine this year as I'm growing for 40 or so people and trying to guesstimate 
quantities city folk may eat is difficult.

Just set out 70 broccolies last night and I think I'm gonna need another 2 or 3 flats 
before the end of the season.  Tonight I'll plant an equal number of cauliflower 
seedlings and 2 flats of cabbages.

This weather is driving me nuts.  This time last week we had record below normal 
temps.  This week we are having a scorching heatwave with way above normal 
temps!  The dandelions just bloomed 2 weeks ago and the raspberries are just 
about half leaved out.  The apple tree is blooming and so is the Yakumo asian pear I 
just planted.  I'm way behind on planting spuds but I should have them in by next 

For those you who are wondering why I'm growing for so many people, we started 
a Community Support Agriculture (CSA) project this year.
