Garden Planning Software

Reading blogs is more than a pastime, it is a way to gain a lot of good information. I recently found this post about vegetable garden planning that introduced me to a method I've not tried. Heidi demonstrates how she uses an online program to plan her garden. I was intrigued enough to sign up for a free trial and feel it will be a real time saver. Not only does it let you draw the plan with their software, it automatically spaces plants and keys everything to the frost dates for your location. If succession gardening is your thing (and I'd love it to be mine), it sends email alerts when it is time to prepare for the next crop.

  1. I wonder if it will alert me when the chickens are invading the garden. :-)
