How to divide a bed 13' x 10'?

V, you're wasting your time doing 'straight' you know it won't last. Smile I did think that as a simple compromise you could divide your rectangular bed into 4 or 6 with wavy lines. But I think after planting, especially with veg, the edges would get obscured an it would lose its design (that might be so for any arty design).

I know you'll have had sleepless nights wondering which plan I'm going to follow. Are you ready?

Its a mongrel between wide rows, running north - South, No paths, Gertrud Frank's spinach "paths" with rather a lot of random thrown in - literally. There are 7 Strips, each about 2' wide.
I had 3 bin bags full of saved seed heads - Red Russian kale, lettuce and a chard/beetroot/spinach mix. Instead of faffing about removing the seeds from the stalks, I chopped them up with secateurs. Each bag became a Strip.
The 4th strip was a jar of old ?beetroot/chard seeds
No 5 - a jar of ?mustard and cress seeds
Nos 6 & 7 came from a tub of really random seeds - maybe brassicas, alliums, salad leaves, calendula, carrots, anything edible.

I didn't sow them in that order - from memory - from the east, the rows are, kale stalks, beetroot/chard jar, lettuce stalks, random tub, beetroot/chard/spinach stalks, ?mustard & cress, random tub.

IF, big IF, these seeds grow, I can cull them for Gertrud paths, eat some and let the chooks forage when I've had enough.

I hardly believe this but that ^^^ plot is turning green with seedlings. Must check tomorrow whether every row has germinated. With my luck they're all weeds. Big Grin

Here's a sample of seedlings - these will be kale of some sort. Smile
