I get so excited looking at a parcel of land, regardless of size and figuring out how to site the garden for maximum harvest. The Foodbank one was easy - to a point - as they get sun all day! No trees (took down the scraggly pines) or buildings nearby to shade it out.
I like two programs: kgi.org/kitchen-garden-p
Both are very modestly priced and have free trials, so why not give them a whirl.
Here's the third plan I drew up for the Foodbank. Keep in mind, that things can always change until the plants go in the ground. They don't use beets, so we've subbed it with onions.
This was drawn with Plangarden.
This is the History Museum patio makeover:
drawn with KGI's program.
(Tried to make the pics as big as I could!)
The winner is KGI, because it provides you with a list of how many plants you need and when to plant them based on your zip code! It makes the museum makeover easier to plan and budget for.
