Here it is! The spreadsheet that will bring all of your plans together, The Garden Planner! I developed this spreadsheet to help me layout my schedule for each bed in my garden and to help me plan my succession planting and harvesting times. I also found I could add more things like, fertilizing, tarping, thinning, and so much more. I want to share this download with you. You can find it in my Garden Planning Tool Box! Let’s me show you how it works.

At the top I have start and end dates just like the Seedling Timeline. These dates will automatically fill in for you once you begin to fill in your bed information. This Garden Planner is also Color-Coded like my Garden Calendar. If you use the listed key words in the task column it will color code itself for easy reading and scheduling.

The next feature is the bed time lines. On each page of your workbook you will find 10 beds. Each bed has a place for the name of your bed. Your bed names can be fancy or simple. I have dreamed of labeling all my beds after United States Presidents but I have not had time to make any fancy labels for them. So for now I call them North 1, 2, or 3 and South 1,2,or 3 and so on. But I can remember them so that is all that matters.

The next step is to fill in your plans with dates and days. Here is an example,

As you can see I have when I plan to fertilize the bed and then for how long I am going to keep the tarp on it before I transplant my spinach. Then how long my spinach will need to stay in h bed tell harvest. Then when I will turn the bed and plant my next veggies and so on. The Start Date Column is programmed to auto fill with the last in date in the End Date Column.

Have fun filling in all your date. Once you are done you will be completely ready for the growing season. Now when you have a few minutes you will now exactly what needs done. Have fun getting your hands dirty. Tell next time,

Pray, Just Plant!
