I created the Simple Garden Planner because I simply couldn’t find a garden organizer to fit my purposes in a sequence that made sense to me. Plus, I like to take my planner out in the garden and I hated getting my expensive one dirty! This one is made to use and be used outside with you!
Here’s how it works:
In Section 1, begin planning your garden — the fun part! You can use my suggestions but make it your own!
In Section 2, you’ll find layout grids to plan your garden plus quick references for plant spacing companion planting. I’ve also provided logs for you to use either by plant or by date. You may use them both or you might think one or the other is sufficient.
In Section 3, log your harvest. This is both a place for the harvest itself and for any freezing or canning you do. This tool will help you know how much to plant next season.
In Section 4, you’ll have a place to recap your garden and make adjustments for next year while it’s still fresh.
Research & Notes
And in Section 5, I’ve provided blank pages for notes — anything you want to record that I didn’t put in the other sections. If you’re a beginning gardener, you might use this for researching individual crops.
Use it how ever it fits you! Just enjoy it!
