It should still be fresh in your mind what worked this year, and what you might want to do differently next time. If you are new to the activity an easy way to lay out your garden is to measure the dimensions and transfer them to a piece of graph paper.
You can easily lay out the most efficient design that will work for your situation. Some things to consider are sunlight exposure, irrigation plan and the layout of rows. Particular attention should be given to the consideration of plant sizes when they are mature. Plants should not be crowded because it can alter their growth and development.
