5 Best Gardening Apps to Help you Plan and Grow a Garden

Looking to grow a garden this Spring? Check out these gardening apps to help you plant and grow a garden!

Last year when we moved into our home, in our backyard sat a small garden that was growing a tomato plant and pepper plant. I had tried gardening in the past, with no luck. Maybe buying a home with a garden would be the answer?

Best Gardening Apps for Garden Planning

My excitement lasted about a month. Between the kids and the dog, our small garden was destroyed.  We now have the outline of a garden, with dirt and a few weeds — the plants, are gone for now…
