Your relay planting method is intriguing. I manage an 1850's Heritage Garden with a verrrrry small budget; all plant varieties must be pre-1850, so every season I am trying to save seed for the next....and raise enough crop to feed volunteers and perhaps, have some harvest to support our local Plant-a-Row for the Hungry program and also sell to fund next year's garden.
Sigh....that's many economic responsibilities to wrestle out of a quarter acre historical garden .
Plus, available greenhouse space varies considerably as I piggyback the Heritage Garden seedlings onto whatever gozillion crops I am raising for the nursery where I finance my life.
I will try your system to stretch my potato crop/seed next season. (Plus, we have better success when I have actual seedlings for volunteers to plant. There is always a gap between the enthusiasm of optimistic volunteers and their horticultural knowledge.)
Thanks for the details,
Shawnee, zone 5, but it's been July weather since late April.
(ps-have I punctuated correctly and so on? Hee hee....my, but you did rattle up the list-serve, didn't you? Cool. Still, I agree. When it's important to communicate something, one strives to be a credit to the teachers who emphasized the infrastructure of our language.)
