Sprout Robot! What a GREAT idea. You put in your zip code and it tells you what you should be planting that week and gives you instructions on how to do so - for BOTH patio gardens (hell yeah gardens in the city!) and lawn gardens. I wonder what my landlord would think about window gardens full of basil… mmMm basil.
So I just found this sweet little website called Sprout Robot. When you create an account you give them your zip code and make a checklist of what type of veggies you want to grow and where you want to grow them. Then, it makes a nifty little list for when you should start the sprouts.They’ll even send you emails to remind you when to start planting! And this is for the free account.If you want to go hardcore and pay for an upgraded account, they will actually mail you the seed packets.
BONUS:: It says I should start some this week!! I totally need some gardening therapy!
If you want to know exactly how and when to plant your garden, all you do is enter your zip code and it gives you the date and what to do! Only problem is that they only have a database for the US right now. No canada :(
Heres their site description:
SproutRobot is a super cool web site that shows you how to grow a garden without making you get a Ph.D. in Gardenology first!
