We have been working hard over the winter on updating the vegetable garden journal and adding new tools for our gardening community. Last week we launched our most recent features and wanted to tell you about them.
Every wonder what are the best tomatoes to grow? How about the most popular seed catalogs to use? Our new Best-Of lists are a way to harness the expertise of our community of gardeners to find out what they think are the best items. You can comment on existing items and even add your own suggestions to the list. You can also suggest new lists if you would like to know what the community thinks about a subject. You can find our current lists at our Gardening Best-Of Lists section
As gardeners we often run into questions that don't have one easy answer. We have created the How-To Questions section to help get answers for those types of questions. You can ask a question and other gardeners in our community can submit their answer to the question. Each answer can be voted up or down based on how well it answers the question. You can ask your own question or look at the current ones in the Gardening How-To Questions section
Sometimes the most difficult things to figure out for your garden are the initial planning items. We are trying to provide several vegetable garden calculators for you to make your job of planning your garden a little easier. View our current garden calculators
We are also working hard to come up with new features for the garden journal itself. In the short term we are considering implementing a "To-Do List" feature, a succession planting guide, and hopefully a beta "drag and drop" garden layout tool. As well as some more garden calculators.
What Do You Want to See?
We are also very interested in finding out your thoughts about the site. What features would you like to see added? Is there anything that is there now you would like to see improved? Anything we are completely missing the boat on?
You can send us any suggestions, comments, or problems from our contact us page
