New SFG iPhone App!

Post  ColoradoNatureGirl on 5/20/2010, 11:25 pm

I was just over on the main site and noticed a link for a new iphone app for square foot gardening!

Has anyone used this yet?

I for one am super excited, I live on my phone and it would be awesome to have an app! I am planning on getting it now and will let you know what I think.

Ok, so I installed the upgraded version for 1.99 the free versions has the same features but you can only have a 2x2 garden, just a teaser really.

Garden Tracker lets you size and plan your garden plot, plant your vegetables, and then track their progress. This app is approved by the Square Foot Gardening Foundation.

This app is free for gardens up to 2x2. Please upgrade for larger gardens.

* Create a garden: Choose the number of rows and columns in your garden. The dimensions are up to you. Create and track as many gardens— as you want !

* Fill in your grid by choosing from the available, pre-loaded vegetables.

* Garden Tracker comes pre-loaded with over 40 common vegetables and general planting information including spacing, water needs, ideal soil temperature, recommended planting season, and recommended planting depth. Any of this information can be edited.

* Add your own vegetable, herbs, or even flowers! Add an unlimited number of plants that you can then add to and track in your garden.

* Track planting date and harvest date. It tracks progress of your garden by calculating estimated days to harvest based on planting date.

* Keep notes on your gardens, email garden details, log actual harvest date, and update your garden through the season.

* Handy reference tools useful for any gardener:
- Sunset/Sunrise calculator by your location and day.
- Lunar calendar for lunar cycle gardeners
- Garden Zone map with first and last frost dates for your USDA planting zone.
- Visual pest database with common pests and a focus on organic solutions to help tackle intruders in the field.

My only complaint is that when you add your own plant you can not add a picture, it has a default picture. Other than that I am really excited. I always have my phone on me and now I can quit taking a clip board with my layout on it to the garden or the book which I am always referencing since I am totally new to this.
