Did I Say Colour???


Following on from my rather dowdy planning post - and with many thanks to Mojo (aka Vrtlarica) and No1 Son, here's the 2011 plan in technicolor.

... Should I be getting out more?

  2. I really was prompted to outline (draw) my own garden because of your last post..to think about what we were going to grow next season... The color is very nice..but...the original post intent brought me to my senses and had me going through the seed catalog's. Thanks for that.

  3. Mal, if we were neighbors there would be no stopping us in drawing garden plans! :)
    Looks great!

  4. Oh this is lovely...that bright splash of colour would cheer anyone up in the murky depths of winter....and of course those that don't get out..lol

  5. Hi Ali, nice to see you.

    All you have to do is to save your file as a .jpg file and then upload it like a photograph.

    Here's how it works for me:

    1.Open "Paint" (the application that comes with Windows)
    2.Open the plan file in whatever application you have it.
    3.Copy and paste your plan into Paint. (and you can edit the colours within paint)
    4 'Save as', selecting file type Jpeg or jpg, to a location of your choice.
    5 Upload to your blog!

  6. You're right Bren. This is a means to an end - a successful harvest at the other end of the year. Sometimes I learn something along the way!

    Mojo - Thanks for sharing the knowledge. You're already a good neighbour.

    Tany and Sue - when I replace my delapidated shed and replace it with a smaller woden hut, I'll just have room for a plinth...

  7. Thanks so much Mal, I will have a try... I was thinking of maybe trying to do it with actual photographs and then cartooning them, but I've no idea how it will turn out.

    Lol I love the brown for potatoes and green for brassicas, and you are obviously growing yellow butter beans!

    I'm rather competitive, so my hand-drawn and photographed plan will have to be done in glorious technicolour next time, you wretch! Talk about upping the stakes!
