Reader letters about the MOTHER EARTH NEWS Vegetable Garden Planner, wood-fired oven and solar stock tank plans, the Nissan Leaf, stevia and more.

Judging by the rave reviews that have been rolling in, the new online MOTHER EARTH NEWS Vegetable Garden Planner is a big hit, which is pretty much what we predicted. Dave, from Nebraska, says, “This tool goes even beyond what I have been looking for.” And Alicia, from Idaho, is thrilled to be able to play in the garden so early: “I love looking at my colorful plan while the weather is cold and envisioning what is to come.”

When we first watched a demonstration of the Planner some months ago, even those of us who don’t usually spend much time planning our gardens on paper or keeping garden notes from year to year were excited by the features the Planner offers.

Bread-baking is the other topic that continues to excite many readers. As Maeghan, from Maine, points out, homemade bread “can save a lot of money and be a lot healthier than store-bought.”

The Garden Planner Reduces Garden Stress

I just wanted to tell you how excited I am about your Vegetable Garden Planner. Now there is finally a way to organize everything for my several gardens. The Planner enables me to plan more than ever and takes stress off my hands at the same time! Thank you so much for the thoughtfulness and creativity in this all-in-one Garden Planner.

It’s a Breeze

This will only be our third time planning a garden, but it was a breeze with the new Planner. We will start our own seeds for 99 percent of what we plant. Thanks to the Planner, we know how many plants we are going to need for every row. Thanks again, Mother!
