The 2019 Garden Planner and Journal from Stony Ridge Farm
Have you ever experienced garden envy?
Have you ever visited a friend’s kitchen garden and eaten produce only to find yourself thinking, I’d never be able to keep up with a project like this?
Yes, most gardeners and would-be gardeners have such experiences.
Have you ever dug into gardening with great enthusiasm in the spring only to find yourself overwhelmed by weeds, bugs, and expenses come midsummer? This is a common gardening phenomenon as well.
Bob and I know first hand the joys and trials of growing clean, tasty fruits and vegetables for themselves and their friends and neighbors. Using the wisdom of 10 years experience building a 1-acre market garden and growing food for themselves, friends and neighbors we created this beautiful, useful, and inspiring Kitchen Garden Planner and Journal.
Let our combined experience help you to:
- Create a planting schedule that is right for your lifestyle, property, and skill level.
- Track your efforts to learn your best gardening practices.
- Track your harvests to learn what grows best where and how.
- Create a garden journal that records your thoughts and feeling as the season unfolding through the life of your kitchen garden.

Kitchen Garden Design
Kitchen garden planning is not complicated. Taking the time to research hours of sunlight, soil quality, ease of access in your garden spaces can ensure greater success during the growing season. For that reason, we’ve dedicated the very first chapter of the planner to garden design.
Is yours a four-season garden? Perhaps you are designing a perennial bed around a particular theme. Or, are you wanting to give square foot gardening a try? The printable design forms allow you to create multiple drafts and then one final design using the best elements of each.
Soil Amendments, Pest Management, Season Extention
Kitchen gardening requires certain infrastructure and specific supplies. One of the drivers for creating the forms in this planner is the utter disorganization of our supplies. Bob and I continually found ourselves needing a particular fertilizer or organic pesticide and either being out of stock or so disorganized it was easier to buy new. That’s simply not sustainable. With this unfortunate truth in mind, we want you to get organized and feel a greater sense of ease in the garden!
Plant Selection and Tracking, Seed Starting Schedule and Tracking
Whether you start your own seeds or purchase plants from a trusted grower, it’s important to keep track of what plants need to thrive in your kitchen garden. We’ve created forms that will help you remember which plants are best suited to specific garden spaces, produce needs, and simply for their beauty. You can get some of these forms for FREE by signing up for our newsletter at this link. I think you will find them very useful!
The kitchen garden can be a money pit! Use this planner to create a budget for your garden, year after year, and then track actual expenses against the projected. Understanding your garden budget creates efficiency and reduces waste.
Seasonal, Monthly, Weekly, and Daily Planners
Calendars and task lists are broken down from season to daily jobs. By now, you know they are available for endless download and printing in the planner. Consequently, planners are simply the best way to stay on top of all your chores, but specifically, garden chores. I cannot manage my life without planners, and I’ve designed this one to replace the multiple ones I have used for all my various projects. I think you will like them!
Allow your creative side to flourish at the end of the garden day. That’s why we’ve created journaling pages to record both facts and feelings about your garden endeavors. Of all the forms we offer, we will be adding to this chapter’s contents more and more over time. With this Kitchen Garden Journal and Planner, you have forever and always access to the printable forms in a password protected website. Lifetime access includes new and updated forms!
Here’s what that page looks like. You simply click an icon to download the form.
