Best Planting Dates
A dear friend provided me with a great link to the old Almanac again. Do you remember that thing? I used to actually buy that every year for years and years and read it from cover to cover. Just change the location to your own locale and it will show you the best dates for planting each type of seed. It also includes very handy grow guides for each plant type with simple clicks. This was really, really nice! The plant categories include: vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, shrubs, and houseplants.
Vegetable Gardening Online.com has a very cool little tool. It lets you plan your garden online using a drag and drop option. You can drag the little veggies and plants into a grid whatever size you plan for your garden. It even lets you plan your companion planting before you put them into the ground. Because it makes noise, it's a fun little toy for adult and kids! This could be used as a good learning tool as well. I had a ton of fun playing.
