Creating A Project Plan For Your Garden

If you are new to gardening, getting started can seem like a daunting task. But if you break it down into each of the small, individual tasks and use some of the apps available, it can be achievable in a relatively short amount of time.

After moving to a new house in the fall of last year, I dreamed of having a large vegetable garden. The yard was a completely blank slate, so I knew I would have to start small and build up to my dream garden one step at a time.

With a full-time office job, a 45 minute commute each way, and two young children (4 and 2), I also knew that I would have to be extremely organized so that I could make the most efficient use of just a couple free hours each weekend and perhaps a few minutes in the evenings after it started staying light out.

Around the new year, I read a friend's blog about making a New Year's Project instead of a New Year's Resolution. This gave me the idea of treating my garden like any other work project — I'd make a project plan!



Here is a sample from my project plan (which I made using Microsoft OneNote, part of the standard Office bundle):
