For the past 5 years I have been planning my garden every year with an Excel spreadsheet. Yes, a spreadsheet.
Channeling my true inner nerd, I have gotten this masterpiece (ahem!) to calculate when to start seeds, when to plant, when to harvest, my harvest goals, how much I’ve actually harvested, how much it’s worth and more, all based on my personal frost dates. Not only that, but I can even keep track of all the varieties I’ve tried with links back to their product pages, varieties I plan to try, their dates to maturity, germination days, and spacing requirements, among other things.
This spreadsheet, as long as it took me to set up, was worth every hour, because, seriously, it answers about a billion questions for me about my garden and it helps me time everything better, and better fine-tune the quantities more and more every year.
