We're going to rotate two of the garden sections for next year. We currentl
y have three sections to our vegetable garden, each 25 feet wide and 30 fee
t long, all adjacent with a walkway between the sections. From left to righ
t, for the last three years they've been 1, the pumpkin patch; 2, vegetable
left; and 3, vegetable right. The two vegetable sections have a variety of
rows, containing corn, beans, potatoes, melons, tomatoes, etc. We have bee
n changing the crops amongst the rows each year and add compost and manure
to the rows every fall.
For next year, we're going to switch the pumpkin patch with vegetable left,
putting the pumpkin patch between the two vegetable sections. After harves
ting the pumpkins next month, we'll bring a few loads of sheep manure from
the barn to spread over the gardens, then till them in before winter hits.
Hopefully, the plants will enjoy a change of scenery.
In a few years, we'll probably switch the pumpkin patch with vegetable righ
