        A popular app this year is the Organic Gardening Planting Planner for the iPhone. It starts with a calendar to maximize your planning and time your planting for your region of the country. This free guide covers vegetable, fruits and flowers. Everything from artichokes to zucchini. This is a great resource app for new and experienced gardeners alike.
        The Burpee Seed people have a great app for Android and Apple devices called The Garden Time Planner. The app also tells you the best times to plant and it has an impressive database of plants and local weather. There are links to how-to-garden    videos. There's also a calendar telling you what you should be doing by what dates.
        Then there's Plant Link. This puts a wireless sensor in your garden to monitor moisture. It connects to the Internet and then alerts you when your plants are too dry. You can even connect a hose to the system so your garden is automatically matter where you are. The cost? 79 dollars.
