Hey Let's Grow

*I am participating in the Monsanto Hey Let's Grow program as a blogger this year.  Materials in this post were provided by Monsanto.  This is a sponsored post.  The opinions in this post are my own.*

So, I'm interested in knowing what you use to plan out your planting season?  What resources do you use to plan out what crops you will grow, how you will plan out your planting schedule, and how you plan out your harvesting and preserving at the end of the season?

I use various seed catalogs to look for different plants to grow.  There are tons of different seed catalogs out there, go forth to the interwebs and see what you can find.  

I also use the Old Farmer's Almanac.  I love this resource, it is SO cool and has tons of really neat information in it.    

I look to see what other garden bloggers in my area have done and see what they are planning on doing.  

I typically start planning out my garden for the next year when the snow is deep and it's depressingly void outside.  That's usually January or February here.  I'll sit down with some graph paper, my seed catalogs, and my calendar and I'll start to plan out when I need to start seeds when they need to transfer into the ground and then take an inventory of what seeds I have in stock and what I will need to order.

I'd love to hear your process - comment below.
