Raised Bed Planting: Rites of Succession

There's been a royal tempest in a teapot about royal succession since Charles and Di divorced and after Princess Diana's death. You're thankful you're a common bloke and all you have to deal with is how to plant a garden with crop rotation in a raised bed. Fortunately, raised bed planting was made for crop rotation, since every inch of the garden is accessible and visible.

You don't have to worry about filling in the spaces or leaving empty spaces, and you can plan out different raised bed planting boxes for simialr vegetables--broccoli and cauliflower, for example. But when do you plant broccoli and cauliflower? Fortunately, broccoli doesn't mind being put in peat pots to wait till it's crowned. You can start your broccoli in June while you're rotating your winter onions, asparagus, and horseradish.

Meanwhile, you keep on with your soil preparation so that the eggplant, which is ending her reign, won't take all the royal soil nutrients. Then...ah...broccoli can hold court along with cauliflower and bok choy. Meanwhile you're gardening raised beds with the devotion of Charles to Camilla. Broccoli matures quickly, like Prince William, so keep an eye on him or you could have a royal row!

Always use the best fertilizer, 10-10-10 fertilizer, especially for tomato plants. Royal succession may be a royal pain, but succession raised bed planting won't be.
