Preparing your garden Rows
We have begun to layout
the string and markers in our main planter boxes for the Camp Internet
Go back over your Garden Plan and count how many rows you are going to
You will need to make some row markers, 1 for each end of the row.
For example: if you have 10 rows you'll need 20 markers.
You can use clean margarine
tubs or old window blinds cut into 1" wide (2.5 cm) strips about 6" long
Use permanent marker to write the name and variety of each plant.
Make 2 for each row, 1 for each end.
Take all your labels, a tape measure or yardstick and your Garden Plan
out to the garden.
Lay the measuring tape along one edge of your garden plot and use your
garden plan to mark off where each row begins.
the correct row marker 2 1/2" (7 cm) into the when each row begins.
Leave enough space between
the rows to walk between your adult plants.
Use a piece of twine pulled taut along the row to keep your lines straight
from the front to the back of the garden .
Don't forget the row markers at the bottom of each row.
Now you are ready to plant your seeds and seedlings.
