Seedtime: The Fastest Way to Plan Your Garden Ever
Seedtime is the first garden and small farm planning web-app that lets you easily visualize and customize exactly when to do anything (yup, we’re talking seeding, transplanting, harvesting, and more) in your garden all year long – based on your local area.
The problem with the current gardening apps out there is that they are, well, lacking. Frankly, we’ve never been that impressed with any of them…
Old user interfaces. Clunky. Not very customizable. A real pain to customize.
Or they just provide you information without actually putting it into a calendar form that keeps you on track through your growing season in an easy – no-brainer way!
For us, it all started when – perhaps a bit rashly – we promised our gardening students that we would give them custom weekly checklists of what to do in their gardens based on their current locations.
We soon discovered that was a lot bigger of a task than we bargained for and none of the gardening tools we could find really made it much easier.
But a promise is a promise. So after intensive research we finally pulled off turning our own massive gardening spreadsheets into our first simple Click ’N Drop Gardening Calendars.
And when we first showed them to our students – let’s just say they went crazy…
I’ve never seen gardeners so excited about anything in my entire life.
But the problem was, though our first calendars were one of the best products on the market, they weren’t fully customizable. And while they made planning a year-round garden easy, they were generic.
Our students needed something better. They needed a gardening plan they could personalize.
The first gardening/farming app that lets you easily visualize and plan exactly when to do anything in your garden all year round – based on your local area.
Seedtime will be custom tailored to your location. That means it’ll pull your average frost dates, latitude, and growing zone to create a garden plan that works perfect for you.
Living in a microclimate? Up 7,000 feet in the mountains? You’ll be able to manually adjust it to more accurately reflect exactly where you will be growing.
Each time you click and drop a planting schedule for a specific crop into your calendar, it’ll map out exactly when to seed it, prepare the bed, transplant, and estimate your harvest dates for you so you don’t have to waste time and energy thinking about it.
This isn’t just a gardening calendar. It’s a guide to help know exactly what to do, and when to do it so you can focus on the fun part – growing your veggies!
We’ve already pre-installed over 30+ popular veggies and herbs to get you running out the gate. We’ll be rapidly updating and expanding this database to include specific varieties, berries, flowers, and more.
You’ll also be able to edit any planting schedule to fit a specific variety you want to grow including days to maturity, spacing between seeding and transplanting etc.
Don’t see the veggie, herb, flower, or anything else you want to grow in the app? When it comes to choosing what to grow – you’re in control.
You can easily add any custom crop to your plan (or choose from our list of pre-installed crops). That means whether you want to grow an exotic french green or a delicate cut flower – just input the growing information and it’ll populate your custom planting schedule into the calendar like everything else.
Are you a cut flower grower or just interested in growing your own flowers? That’s so awesome.
We are currently working with a cut flower farmer and will be inputing flowers into the calendar soon!
This means you’ll be able to easily move any planting schedule to where you want it in the calendar, creating a truly personalized year-round garden plan.
Want to plan your garden around that vacation you were planning? You bet!
Once you drop crop planting schedules into your calendar you can easily drag and drop them to the exact time that best fits your schedule.
We’ll even warn you if you’re moving the planting schedule too far into a time where it might not grow as well. But not to worry – you’re still in control and can ultimately choose to move it anywhere.
Want to have a continual harvest of lettuce? It used to be a real challenge to figure it all out. Now you’ll be able to easily drop in automatic succession plantings of any crop to plan for a continual harvest!
Succession planting schedules will automatically calculate based on our suggested timing – or you can customize them to create your own personalized set.
