Allotment Plan 2016

plan-2016Here’s a picture from our GrowVeg planner. It’s a large picture, because it’s a large plot!

We probably have slightly fewer plants than are listed, because we’ve gone a little over on the spacing in places.

We have the three beds on the right hand side on a rough 3 year rotation. Last year there were a small amount of crops already in, so we had to use them as the basis for Year One.

We use crop rotation to prevent soil exhaustion and reduce the risk of pests and diseases.

3 year rotation
Bed Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
One Roots, onions and leaves Peas, beans and fruiting vegetables Brassicas
Two Brassicas Roots, onions and leaves Peas, beans and fruiting vegetables
Three Peas, beans and fruiting vegetables Brassicas Roots, onions and leaves
