If you can surf the web, you can garden–or so say the folks at Smart Gardener, the new vegetable gardening app that turns any thumbs into green ones.

The free online vegetable garden planner offers a comprehensive, step-by-step plan to growing a beautiful organic garden, taking into consideration factors like region, climate, and family size, creating a customized plan for each user’s specific needs.

Using the platform, anyone can create a virtual garden plan, detailing the space available, its relation to the sun, and the kind of vegetables right down to the last carrot. The app then compiles this information and sends the user weekly to-do lists.

It also includes features like a digital journal for keeping notes, storing pictures, and tracking information, as well as a collection of “signature gardens,” which include profiles of chefs, celebrities and top gardeners who share their own secrets to successful gardening. Basic access to the app is free, but additions (such as personalized guides) can be purchased for increased functionality.

“We all want the most flavorful, healthy food and we know the best way to get it is to grow it ourselves,” said Kristee Rosendahl, co-founder. “Now it’s never been so simple to succeed in growing your own organic vegetable garden.”
