Garden Goodies: Online Garden Planner

At last, I found a way to help me avoid planting my vegetables too close together! This online garden planner is featured on the Seed Savers Exchange website (free trial for 30 days, $25 subscription for a year) and is an absolutely amazing tool that all gardeners should add to their collections. It determines how many plants of each variety can fit in a given space, the required spacing for each plant, the timeframes for sowing/transplanting/harvesting, and several other neat things. Not only is it much easier than hand-drawing my own garden blueprints, it’s just plain fun to use.

Here’s my spring garden plan for my 15′ x 15′ plot in the community garden:

The succession planting feature in this garden planner was also useful for overlaying my summer garden plan in this plot (to be featured in a future post). Gives the seedlings something to aspire to.
