Awesome Garden Planner Program

Early Morning Gardening with Brad Saturday
It's been a few days since I last wrote and frankly I'm impressed that I'm writing now! A few friends, including family and myself decided to sign up for a Triathlon Sprint race, May 19th. I honestly don't know what spurred my desire to race. I haven’t ridden a bike since 7th grade; my best stroke is the breaststroke/doggie paddle, and I injured my knee over 10 years ago restricting my running abilities. Basically, I’m the worst candidate to attempt this race.

But I did sign up, so I’m gonna do it. This means waking up at 5 am for a swim. Ugh! Let’s just say I’m a little tired these days…well tired since last Monday….when I decided to start training. I know I’m a slacker! I should have started months ago because I’m pretty pathetic when it comes to swimming, biking and running.

I realize I need to make up a lot of lost promises to discuss soil, planning, planting etc. and I will soon…..HOWEVER…

I just found the coolest thing that saves SO much time when planning a garden. It’s this awesome online program where you basically create the garden you want with your garden dimensions. Seriously, this is so easy and saves so much time.

In the past, I’ve drawn my garden plan on graph paper, and end up losing it. But this program keeps track of what you plant and where no need to worry about replanting in the same spot the following year. 

I can also create my dream garden in just minutes:
This program accommodates square foot, portage gardening. It’s a $25 year membership with a 30 day FREE trial. If you are a bit intimated by creating a plan, check out the published plans of other users to get the juices following.

Happy gardening! 


  1. This is a neat way to do it! Then you can know how many of each vegetable seed or plant to buy, too. Very smart, thanks for sharing!

  2. This is great! I'm totally into garden planning mode too. can't wait to start planting!

  3. Wow! How cool is that! I'm definitely going to have to share this cool tool. Thanks for sharing. And good luck in your triathlon! :)

  4. AWESOME... I too am doing a garden, yet on a larger scale this year... this program will come in very handy! Thanks for the share!!
