With the entrance of spring underway, my garden has been on my mind a lot lately. A couple of weeks ago I started the planning process of my spring garden. I am growing from seed then transplanting into my raised garden bed I built last summer. Narrowing down what I actually want to grow was a bit challenging. I want to start small and only grow vegetables and herbs we actually eat regularly.
This website also has a tool to plan the layout of your vegetable garden. Many of us use online software to plan a room in our house and this is the same but for your garden. You can experiment with your garden bed design and plant placement, find out frost dates, get a personalized planting chart, plan succession sowings and crop rotations.
It was a cinch to use and if you get stuck they have some handy videos that talk you through the steps. I love that you can switch from row planting to the square foot planting method. The site will suggest how many of each plant you should plant per square. That came in handy as I am using the square foot method.
