Well it's that time of year. I try to remember where my perennials are
and which ones bloom at which time. I figure out where I can fit the
tomato plants that always end up encroaching on whatever's beside them
I figure it's about time I make some notes so I don't have to figure
this out again every year. What I'd like to do is make a scale diagram
of my garden-flowerbeds and try to map this out. I suppose I could use
graph paper, but where's the fun in that?
I haven't found any promising leads by searching (Google (with open
source in the terms), Sourceforge and freshmeat). Even 'scale diagram'
doesn't turn up much. I have a bit of experience with Dia, but always
feel like I'm fighting it to get things sized the way I'd like.
What would you use for drawing a scale diagram (for values of 'you'
where 'you' is in the set 'CAD newbs'). Even better, do you know of any
(FLOSS) garden planning software?
