We love the springtime as everything is coming to life again after winter, and it’s always this time of year that makes us excited to grow many things in our garden.
If you’re interested in leaning towards self-reliance this summer with a vegetable garden, the Farmer’s Almanac has a great gardening planner website that we love! This online tool allows you to draw out your vegetable beds, add plants and move them around to get the perfect layout. The Garden Planner adapts to suit the type of gardening you do, whether you use traditional row planting, containers, raised beds or Square Foot Gardening.
Learn When to Plant
One of the great things about this website? You enter in the location of your home and garden, and it tells you exactly when to plant, when to harvest, and combines weather reports to help you keep your garden thriving.
If you use the garden planner for multiple years, it will even help you decide when you might need to rotate crop locations to keep your soil healthy.
To make it even easier, once you have your garden all planned out, you’ll receive emails every other week to remind you what you need to plant and when.
Access to Experts and Community
While there’s a 7 day free trial, once you sign up for a one year subscription that starts at just $29, you’ll have access to thousands of helpful videos and articles from gardening experts. Our favorite part of the subscription though? Getting access to the Almanac communities on different social media platforms that allows you to connect with other gardeners in your area and throughout the world!
We just love that this app does so much more than just help you plan your garden. It’s truly an entrance into an entire community of others that can help us on our gardening journeys.
