With the weather finally getting warmer, your mind is probably drifting to outdoor activities. That could be swimming, barbecuing, traveling or, for a lot of people, gardening.

This time of year is great for getting down in the dirt and planting seeds. In no time, little green shoots will sprout up, and soon brightly colored flowers will be everywhere.

That sounds nice. But gardening can be daunting, too, especially if you're planting a vegetable garden.

There are so many varieties of vegetables with different temperature and soil requirements, and different needs when it comes to being in full sunlight to full shade. Plangarden can help.

It helps you figure out what to plant, when to plant it and where to plant it. It walks you through measuring your garden, then incorporates the weather where you live, based on your ZIP code, to give specific instructions.

There's also a vegetable calculator, so you won't plant too many veggies, or too few. Input the number of square feet you'll use for a specific vegetable. Choose the vegetable you're planting, like a cucumber in the image below, and Plangarden will show you the number of cucumbers you can grow.

Note: You can try it free for 45 days. After that, a subscription is $20 a year or $36 for three years. Don't worry, all the work you did during the free trial is saved.
