I Like a Good Masterplan


There’s nothing better than following some firmly laid plans – even the ones that don’t even last out the sowing season. Some may say that my masterplans are a tad overboard, frivolous or at the very least a damn idiotic waste of a good evening. But I say no! I put it to you that all gardeners should partake in the drawing of masterplans, in the childish yet comforting sketching of tiny vegetables, in the use of felt-tip pens.

  4. Hey, great plan. I have to admit to stealing your idea. I saw a previous plan a while back and I had a go at my own. Check it out on my blog if you fancy. It’s not as creative as yours maybe but it’s a start.

Respect to you for making the effort. It looks great! And my girlfriend thinks I am a lunatic.

  5. Hi Luke thanks for posting. I did link to your plan in my initial post. Seeing your plan made me think that others must have them too!
