There is a website my son told me about called growveg.com. It is so much fun to use. I think you should all check it out, and try their free garden plan, then we can gang up on @dave, and ask him to do something similar for ATP. There are many things on it that i know dave would program more user friendly.

And here's a picture of the 80x80' garden plan I'm working on for this year:

you cant read it, but each plant is labeled, and each one has the plant type such as beefsteak tomato

That looks like the same - or similar - planner that I've seen on quite a few other sites; 30 days free trial, then you have to pay for a subscription.

Could be, but we don't have one here. And i do feel that @dave, being a gardener, could eliminate the bugs.

Oops, sorry, TK -- I re-read the original post and it was perfectly clear what you were saying, not sure what I thought you meant *Blush*

I agree it would be fabulous to have something like that here, with the plants tied into the database -- seems like it might be a massive undertaking, though, so I hope Dave will give us his thoughts on it. Maybe even to offer that same planner here (I've seen it a lot of places so I assume there's a way for a website to do that) -- although I don't think I'd pay for the "subscription" I suspect a lot of people would, and maybe it would generate revenue for ATP.

Either way would be ok with me. I already joined growveg.com for 2 years, so dave has time if its something of interest for him. Might be easier to just have a link to it. Or not. I think its great, as it saves your info for 5 years i think, and tells you what you shouldn't plant there for a while. Its fun to play with. Im glad you re-read my post as i was beginning to wonder if i was totally unable to make myself clear. Like a rambling crazy person.

Thanks for the suggestion! Something like this would be a big undertaking and I would never be able to devote the time to such a huge project without sacrificing priorities in other areas.

LOL, I've had that happen myself... but no, it wasn't you (not this time, at least!)
