Gardening Resources for Large to Small Plots

Whether you are planning a container garden on a balcony or a one-acre plot in the back forty, preparation is so important.  It honestly can determine how satisfying your harvest is.  I thought I'd share some resources with you that have been extremely helpful over the years.


Online Resources:
  • Smart Gardener is a free, online garden journal that keeps everything organized for you.  You can design your plot, calculate how much of each veggie you need to grow depending on how many people you are feeding, it will have a to-do list for you, and gives many helpful tips.  I love this site!
  • Back to Eden.  Talk about inspiration!  You won't be the same after watching this.
  • Zone-by-zone to-do lists from Organic Gardening.  A great reference to stay on track.

Seeds and Tools:
There are so many choices out there.  I'd love to hear where you like to find seeds.  Here are places I  have shopped from and love:
Do you have a favorite gardening resource?  I'd love to hear about it.

I'm sharing this at Simple Lives Thursday.


  1. This is such a helpful post! Thank you. I'm getting the gardening bug right now too. We're in cold, cold Idaho though, so it will be months before planting. It was 13 below zero this week!

  2. Brrrr! Happy planning and I hope you can stay cozy. :)

  3. Thanks for posting!! My husband and I want to grow some of our own organic veggies this year, but other than around the deck are yard is mostly shaded so I have to do mostly containers. The smart gardener site seems great!

  4. Is that picture of your garden!?
