Fran's Victory Garden is evaluating Web Based Garden Planning Packages. I have started out Binging & Googleing "web based vegetable garden planner", learned right away to specify "vegetable ". With the responding wealth in websites I realized I might have a difficult time, there were a good number of planning packages. Where to start? By adding "reviews" to the query resulted with a starting point to enumerating the features of each package. As I read the Review websites, I will add to the following Features list. Later when I visit the sites, I will create a grid of Features.
- Web based. - required
- Vegetable focused. - required
- Shareable. - required

- App available.
- Succession Planting.

- Affiliate program.
The list of Review Websites is where I'll start familiarizing myself with the possibilities. I will work thru the list alphabeticly foot noting which web based sites are are being reviewed. When all the data is collected, I will look at each of the sites in desending order of number of time reviewed.
