    Hey Karen!

    Just an FYI… this post is still the one linked on your “vegetable gardening” page… not the corrected one that you mentioned in the last comment above this one.

    Also, are you going to add more vegetables to the seed calendar as time goes on? I didn’t see carrots or beans…. and assume that zucchini is on the same clock as squash?

    Thanks for this great tool! I just updated my excel sheet with the dates from your calendar (and the almanac)

    Hi Karen,

    I tried taking a look at this today, but nothing shows up. Tried on a couple different browsers with the same results. Wondering if this is maybe a glitch from the changed web format, or something else? Anyway, I found this to be a really helpful tool – is there something I’m missing?

    Thanks :)

    Wow! You my friend (oh you didn’t know we were friends? Hm.) are amazing! I sure didn’t expect a response and resolution until days, well weeks, from now! Not until well after your vacation. I love you (like cool friend love, not blog stalker live, because that would be weird).

  4. Mel says:

    Oh no! I pinned this post last year so I could calculate when to start my seeds, but the calculator isn’t here anymore, just the post title. Glitch or did you delete it?
    And happy extremely well deserved vacation. Enjoy yourself!

    this is great! is there a printable version??

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Brandie. Sorry, there isn’t a printable version. All you have to do though is highlight and copy the calendar. Then you can paste it into either a Word document or email and print it from there. ~ karen!

    Awesome calculator Karen. It works so fast – even on dial-up!

    Every winter I make a rough planting guide going by the previous year’s planting dates and successes or failures. It requires lots of page flipping and deciphering. This is so much easier. It will be great to add these calculations onto my big life calendar and see how they match up. Then all we need is spring. I saw my raised beds yesterday. Now they’re covered in more snow. No heat wave yet.

    Oh my! I think I love you! Now hmmm…I hear gardens around here die in our August heat and that we can replant for a long fall harvest. If only I wasn’t behind in catching your articles, maybe some of your other Southern U.S./Texas readers could shed light on that.
