Gardening: Planting Map

We recently built raised beds for our garden (learn how we did that here). Here is how we laid out the garden, planning for the taller plants in the back of the garden, so they didn't block the shorter plants from sunlight. We also put the green vegetables rabbits seem to favor in one bed and placed a small fence around it. Our garden is going to be chemical free, caring for our plants naturally and organically.

There are a combination of seeds and plants, and everything we bought was either organic or heirloom (meaning that nothing is genetically modified). For the herbs we don't use while fresh, we are planning to use our dehydrator to make dried spices.

We have a few pots around our deck where we planted stevia, lavender, basil, oregano, chives and a strawberry plant.
