[/url][/b][/center] Publisher's Description: The Seed Program - The Seed Program for Windows is a database system for garden seeds. Use it to help organize your seeds -- keep track of what seeds you have purchased, where they are from, how old they are or what seeds you need to buy.
The program will print a planting schedule for the seeds you have entered, so you know exactly when and how to plant all of your seeds.
Phil, have you coughed up the $25 bucks for this program yet?...if so, does it work well?...i don't mean technically, but as a recordkeeping device (well maybe tech. too)...i've started using your excel spreadsheet for seed tracking this year (thank you very much) but would like to record all my info in one place...i tend to have bits of garden info here and there but never all together. BR (b4 retirement) i would have dropped $25 with no thought but PR (post ret.) i might rather spend it on seeds unless it is really good.

no we haven't Peach, this coming season I am going to attempt to keep better records, bout all I pay attention to now is rotation and until I can't remember what we planted in any given spot the previous year... I was told though that it is good software, But I believe a person can do reasonably good at this, provided they do a good job at planting time of recording what they plant, and even the best software still requires ya to do that.
Keeping track of where I planted tomatoes and peppers for rotation purposes is about all I've ever done, too. I've just wondered if it would be beneficial for me to keep track of all the other factors that go into a successful garden. But, as you say, no matter what I use, I would still have to record it--which seems to be my downfall. LOL
For people who use Apple products, there is some older software, it's a suite ( 4 programsd) one for designing stuff house wise, one for landscaping that also lets you "age" the plants to see what the layout looks like in several years, another one is called "Sprout"- garden program that is pretty good- layout designed by the user, database, etc.. I forgot what the 4th program is, only had used the landscape and Sprout one before.
Check for used software or new old stock on this.
Can also be used on PC with the program that lets you run Apple programs on PC and vice versa.
