LifeHack: TechnoGardening

If you are at all like me, you are eagerly awaiting being able to cast off the white wintery veil for the rainbow-hued blanket of spring growth.  About this time of year, I start to really plan what I want in my garden.  Whether you are planning a personal, community, or education based garden, the thrill of new life and fresh vegetables sprouting should leave you in shivers (no pun intended).

Here is a program that is worth its weight in humus.  Smart Gardener is an online program that helps you decide what plants are right for you, create a personalized garden plan, give you weekly tasks and reminders, and a journal to track your thoughts and progress.  Now that is a LifeHack that will save you lots of time.  Oh, did I mention the membership is free?  Bonus!

Now find a young person or student, and get them involved in developing a garden.   Teaching the young a greener way is the best way to a greener future!

    Thanks Pete. We always have our own garden…mostly for veggies to can salsa. I had no clue there was a site to help you plan and maintain your garden. 🙂

      I’m moving my gardens this year so I’m going to plant all from transplants. However, next year the ability to remind me to plant seeds at the appropriate time will really come in handy. 🙂
