Understanding the gardening calendar isn't all that hard of a task. Basically it is knowing the planting times, growing seasons, and harvesting times for each of the different plants and items that you may be growing. While there is plenty of information readily available on the internet, in the local farmers almanac, and even at your local gardening store, nothing quite matches up to personal experience. This can be done by creating a journal of sorts.
Now that you have your journal ready to go, and have kept track of what you have done over the past season, you can begin planning. Use the growing times, temperatures, and even the notes of when each plant is ready for harvesting to help you over the next year. Repeat the process over the next few years, and you will have enough information to start creating an average that you can begin using for your planning. This average (for planting, growing, harvesting, etc.) you can use to make your official, personalized, gardening calendar.
