Vegetable Garden Planner at Mother Earth News


Are you planning to grow some of your own food this year? If what’s standing between you and a vegetable garden is doubt, Mother Earth News just might have the solution. They just launched a Vegetable Garden Planner, and it looks amazing!

The planner is free for the first 30 days and costs $25 per year after that. You enter your location and plan your garden, and the planner helps you plan a garden with vegetables that grow well in your area. It also sends you twice-monthly reminders about what to plant! They’ve got a quick video that shows you how to get started:
