Turning the Dream into Reality

Garden Wizard March 16, 2010

We have a great computer program called Garden Wizard. It allows you to enter in your garden size, all the vegetables that you want to plant, and the quantity of each. It also keeps track of your location, so that you do not plant things that will not grow in your area. After you have entered in all of your information, it tells you when to start the seeds, when to transplant, when the seeds go in the ground if they are not started beforehand, etc. It tells you about spacing and the approximate harvest date. Apparently I started the tomatoes a little early, but with my track record, I’ll need a little extra time to restart the ones I kill. The great thing is that we now have a garden layout so we can see how much space we have left over and decide what we want to plant more of. This year we have decided to dedicate a row to the 2nd Harvest food bank, and now we can decide what to plant as well as how much of each. This is such a great program for those of us who are relatively new to the game of gardening.
