    For example, all the roots (carrots, beets etc) that can be sown in March are in one envelope/box. Then, in Roots week in March, I pick up that envelope and sow something from it.
    That was the plan anyway but now, I'm going to change it to BS (before Solstice) and AS (After Solstice) and keep all the March-June seeds together. Lots of them can be sown over several months anyway.
    I'm worried that you'll think this is sensible too.
    There's my plan, ready made! So good it's nearly flat packed!

    The next step is to sow roots one week, shoots the next, then fruits and finally leaves - so that you have a 4 week cycle of sowing and can do repeat sowings every 4 weeks.

    Summer should be Thursday 28th July. That way there could only be an overbearingly hot and dry summer once every 11 years.

    By the way VC, which version of the calendar does this apply to?
