Win the best vegetable garden planner!

We've all been there, right?

  • You plant your garden… and you forget where you put the peppers.
  • You decide to add fertilizer, but you have to look up your organic fertilizer recipe each time.
  • You are pretty sure you need to start those seeds… but then again, what were those dates again?

I found the solution, seriously! This is the best vegetable garden planner out there and there is even room for you to customize it to your own tastes. So, how do you get (or win)  this planner?

The Search is on: the Best Vegetable Garden Planner

I  have searched high and low for a good, no great, vegetable garden planner. I think part of my problem is I was always looking for free printables or a free vegetable garden planner. I found some decent ones, but they were always lacking something. Then I realized that, like almost everything in life, you get what you pay for (and sometimes make up for it in time). Most of these planners needed a little tweaking here and there to really work for me.

And they were always missing parts…

Then I started looking at vegetable garden planners at amazon. Okay, looks good, but they only last a year. Then came the lightbulb. You need to mix the two! Get a printable vegetable garden planner and a three ring binder. If you want you can even have it spiral bound at Kinko's or by using your own book binding tools. This way you can keep what you need each year and print out new pages for the stuff that changes.

Finding the Perfect Vegetable Garden Planner

So on with the search. Now I knew I was looking for a printable planner that covered everything that was in my crazy gardening head (and then some). I found it in The Gardening Notebook. The Gardening Notebook has everything.

  • If you are a beginning gardener starting a raised bed vegetable garden then this planner will help. You can even plot your raised bed vegetable garden layout on the grid paper that is included.
  • Frugal gardeners looking to remember their cheap gardening tips will find the note space great.

So, if you are trying to learn how planting vegetables for beginners can help your homestead, looking for how to design your vegetable garden, or even just a small vegetable garden design, this planner can help you.

    My favorite part about the Gardening Notebook is the Garden Layout and Seed and plant purchase record. (so I can compare and give myself a price point guide to seeds and plants)

    This looks fantastic, now if I could find the motivation to actually do it!

    • Reply Heidi April 16, 2015, 11:45 am

      Yep! I always have the motivation to start, it’s just depressing when stuff gets eaten! I just had an entire plot of peppers taken out by hungry pests! And, they ate my couple of watermelon starts too.

    I love the enriching the garden and soil part of the planner. I always have problems with my soil.

    Very neat! I love that it has gardening layout pages.

    My favorite part of The Gardening Notebook by Schneider Peeps are the Worksheets. I like that they give you tips for growing vegetables, fruits, herbs and ornamentals. I especially like that you have plenty of room for you to write notes to yourself about what will grown and what has failed. I have been wanting to start a garden and this would lead me on the right path.

  • Reply tracee April 22, 2015, 12:00 pm

    I like that worksheets can be printed over and over as you need more (or lose them!)

  • Reply Ashley F April 22, 2015, 12:07 pm

    I love that there is a pests, problems and solutions worksheet. I would love to have something like this so I don’t have to “google” every little problem I have while gardening!
