|The VGA Live! - Garden Tasks|
This section deals with recording all the typical garden tasks involved in growing your own food. Each of the tasks shows up in your Journal in the Events column and can be viewed/edited from there.
Each task is either for a particular Crop or Bed and forms part of the 'History' of each.
|There is no limit to the numbers of 'Plots' you can set up either - and also to the number of Beds each may have. Note that you don't have to stick to just allotments and beds, you can set up whatever is convenient to your growing.|
Sowing/Planting CropsHere we are Sowing Broad Beans on the North Side Shelf of my first greenhouse. The notes indicate the compost I am using (as a trial). I have already recorded a number of packets of seeds I have in the Seed Manager so I just have to make a selection from that list to get the crop variety for this sowing record. Note 2 of the 11 botanical 'family' pictures are greyed out. This tells me that I have sown crops from those families (Alliaceae and Solanaceae) in the last 2 years - a useful aid to ensuring proper crop rotations (on a bed-by-bed basis).
