Here is a quick review of a piece of software I use and recommend. It is called GrowVeg, and it is an on-line, light-weight Java application that runs in your browser – you don’t even have to load any software.
You start by setting your location and climate zone, and giving a name to your garden(s).
GrowVeg provides a drag-and-drop interface that lets you first design your garden area, then drag crops to your garden lay-out and stretch the rows out to fit. When you are done, it prints planting charts with dates for starting, setting out and harvesting each crop, number of plants needed, and more.
Successive seasons are planned starting with a copy of you garden. As you add new crops to the garden, it reminds you to practice crop rotation.
