Vegetable Garden Layout plans are an important part of vegetable gardening, putting your garden in a plan on paper will help your determine what you will be growing and where to plant.
When creating a vegetable garden keep in mind if you want to grow an organic vegetable garden companion planting and crop rotation will play an important role. Learning how to compost and adding composted material to your garden will also help grow lovely organic vegetables.
Companion planting plays a very important role in Organic gardening, planting the right crops next or with each other will help to eliminate pests that can destroy your crops.
Rotating your crops helps to keep the soil from being depleted of valuable nutrients need for growing your vegetables.
Of all the vegetables you will be growing in your garden Rhubarb and Asparagus are the most common perennials.
If you are growing these you need to find a spot for them before planning the rest of your vegetable garden.
To plan your garden take a look at your yard, maybe even draw up a rough plan of your property with your house, patio, etc. in the plan.
This will give you a better idea of where to place your vegetable garden and how much room you will have for your garden.
When you have selected the location for your vegetable garden, keeping in mind the amount of sunshine the location will receive, the soil and the level of land.
Now to create your garden plan use a piece of paper to draw it out, think about what vegetables you like to keep in your fridge and decide which ones you will be growing in your garden.
Lettuce, peas, beets, chard, carrots, radishes, potatoes and green beans are fairly easy to grow.
You’ll have to decide whether you have room to grow all the plants you want in your plan.
When you have decided what vegetables your want to include in your plan and how much room to will have to grow them, then take a look at companion planting to make sure you get the best out of every harvest. As an example Peas and Carrots grow very well together.

I do love the way this page lays out the process of planning and laying out a garden so clearly and concisely. Doing it on paper and in your head first makes the end result so much more satisfying, I think.
It’s never exactly as you envisioned the thing, but the plan gives you a great starting point and a reference for how you do your next one better.
Thanks for your comments, I find planning the garden really helps although I have to say sometimes I change it up a bit when planting and forget to record it, but for the most part it works out real well.
