new tools

It’s crop planning time, a task made a little less daunting with a few new-ish farm planning tools I’m thinking about trying out this year.

I also decided to try out a new Target Harvest Date Calculator, a simple time-saving spreadsheet developed by Growing for Market and Johnny’s Seeds. Finally, there’s AgSquared, a fancy new record-keeping software for farmers that looks pretty intriguing (and it’s free!). Check out their demo
