From the Rodale Institute and Small Farm Central subscribers, John and Aimee Good of Quiet Creek Farm in Fogelsville, PA, an article on crop plans for the CSA that may help in your planning towards 2013!

"The master crop plan lists every crop we will grow including the variety, seeding and transplanting dates, and space requirements. Space requirements are listed as bed feet, rows per bed, and total row feet needed to grow each crop. Most of these crops also include multiple planting successions with the same data and we note whether a crop is to be direct seeded or started in the greenhouse. If a crop will be started in the greenhouse, we include the in-row spacing between plants in the field, which allows us to determine how many plants and seeds we will need."
