Just click (or tap) on a crop you'd like to grow. There are often multiple plantings to choose from.
Crop tasks drop into your calendar so you'll know exactly when to seed, prepare your garden bed, transplant, cultivate, harvest and more...
View your whole year, week, or month at a glance. Or switch to see a custom checklist of what to do each week.
Each time you drop a planting schedule for a specific crop into your calendar, it'll map out exactly when to seed it and estimate your harvest dates for you so you don't have to waste time and energy thinking about it.
But we decided to take it a step further.
Instead of just settling for seeding and harvesting, why not be reminded for other garden actions related to that crop? Like a reminder to get your garden bed prepared and ready before you seed or transplant into it, when to transplant, when to cultivate and/or check up on your veggies, and when and how to make a "stale seed bed" ahead of time to get a HUGE head start on the weeds for direct seeded veggies.
This isn't just your gardening calendar. It's your garden buddy reminding you of exactly what to do, and when to do it so you can just focus on the fun part - growing your veggies!
It's one thing to know when to seed or transplant your veggies. It's another thing to know exactly how to do it. And how to do it right - so that they thrive and you thrive.
That's why with every single action/task in our gardening calendars there are detailed instructions outlining exactly what to do, how to do it, and even links to videos walking step-by-step through the entire process. Like how to prepare your garden beds without breaking your back, how to keep your garden weed free in just minutes a week, or how to transplant your veggies so that they thrive.
In fact, we'll not only show you how to do each task, but we'll show you the best ways we know of to get the job done fast and with the least amount of effort (think less work, less stress, and less overwhelm). That's called satisfaction.
Ever wish you could plan your garden based off of when you want to be harvesting each veggie?
Or wish you could see your year at a glance and know what you should expect to be seeding or harvesting in a month or two months from now?
Now you can with our simple garden actions filter. Just choose which action you want to filter by and the whole calendar will only show you those actions.
So hey, want that quick overview of when each crop should to be seeded or harvested? It's just a click away...
One of the best ways to get the most out of your garden area is to grow multiple crops of the same veggie during your growing season.
Think about lettuce. You pick the head and it's done in 50 days. But why not grow another head of lettuce to take it's place? That's exactly what succession planting is and it'll sky rocket the amount of food you get from your garden.
And that's why we've built succession planting right into your calendar. Instead of just planting one crop, plant them in succession and you'll have a continual harvest through the season.
But it used to be super complicated to figure out exactly how to space out each succession planting. There's all kinds of variables to think about. How long will your harvest last for one planting? How long can this crop continue to grow and thrive in the growing season, what about in the winter when everything slows down?
Sound overwhelming? Yeah it can be! But don't sweat. That's exactly why we've done the math for you - all you have to do is click what you want to grow and you'll be up and running in no time.
Ever wish you could be harvesting fresh veggies from your garden in the middle of the winter?
Now you can! In fact we'll teach you the most cost effective ways to grow mouth-watering veggies straight through the dead of winter without breaking your pocketbook.
And no, you don't have to have a full blown greenhouse with heaters running.
In most places in the USA you can grow year-round with simple protection measures. And now with our four season planting calendars you'll not only know when to plant your winter veggies, we'll even show you exactly how to keep them protected.
And if you live in one of the rarer locations where it just gets crazy - you'll still be able to at least extend your seasons by a good long ways into the winter.
If you want to grow a garden any time during the spring, fall, or winter, then it's important to know when to expect freezing temperatures to hit.
That's why we've built into our calendars a simple frost guide so at a single glance you can know if your garden is liable to be hit by a frost or not.
No frost guide is perfect. We can't predict nature. But we can give an average and let you know when to look out for your location.
But we didn't stop there. For those serious about winter gardening we added a "hard frost zone" guide as well. That's when to keep an eye out for hard freezes down in the low 20s and below.
Ever felt overwhelmed leafing through gardening catalogues trying to figure out which tomato variety to grow? Sometimes it's hard to know where to start.
That's why we've included links out to some of our favorite varieties for each of the crops.
Not only will these save you time trying to figure out which one to grow on your own, but now ordering your seeds from a reliable and safe seed company will only be a click away.
