     GARDEN INVENTORY 2013
    Just for fun I thought I'd take inventory of what I have growing in my garden, to see how the herbs, veggies and flowers stack up next to each other, which plant families I tend toward, and basically just to be able to look back in thirty years and be able to compare where I am with where I've been.  I'm not listing every single variety because that would just be too much, but instead just listing the ones I really like.  I'm a bit of a seed saving junkie, so if you see anything on this list that you'd like to get your grubby little paws on, let me know and we'll see if we can work out a trade.

PLANTING CHARTS
    This is my rough guide I've been following for veggies the last few years.  DS stands for Direct Seed.  TP stands for Transplant.  Temp refers to the ideal temperature for germination.  Plant wks/b4frost refers to the last frost date.  Mine is May 10th here in Afton, VA, so the last week in April would be 2 weeks before last frost, the last week in March would be 6 weeks before last frost, and so forth.  Accordingly, when I have a 7 marked in the last column for Tomatoes, that means start them indoors 7 weeks before last frost, aka around March 20th.  When cucumbers say DS -2 that means direct seed them 2 weeks after last frost, aka at the end of May.  Sometimes there is a list of numbers in the last column for a given vegetable, which encourages me to plant successions for more continual harvest.  Needless to say, I'm always messing around with these guidelines because each year is different from the last both in weather and what I want out of my garden.  More often than not life has a way of rearranging my plans and I find that my carefully calculated schedule could be improved upon anyways, so take this nerdy spreadsheet with not just a grain of salt but a whole heaping handful.

HERB PLANTING CHART
Strat means stratify - put them in the refrigerator or freezer for a period of time to simulate winter so when you take the seeds out and plant them they will be primed and ready to go.  Light/Dark refers to how much light the seeds need to be triggered into germinating.  Light often suggests that the seeds be barely covered with soil, also meaning be careful when you water them that you don't wash them out of place and bury them in soil.  Misting is usually in order, so I carry my flats down to the local produce section and leave them there until the fake thunder lets me know they're being watered.  Just kidding.

    I hope these can be useful to you.  I figured as long as I spent the time making them they might as well be available for others.
    I also have a month by month planting calendar that I'd be happy to share with you if you'd like but it's way to big to put up on the website.  Likewise  I have corresponding herb, flower and veggie charts for growing specifications - spacing, days to harvest, that kind of thing.  If you're interested, drop me an email and I'll send you the file.
