The Seed Mate iPhone app helps you keep track of the hundreds of seeder specs that keep piling up. If you're doing any direct seeding for a diverse vegetable farm, market garden, or CSA, this app is for you! You can schedule reminders to come back later and flame weed, or to check on how the germination came up at your current seeder settings.
Note down seed hole size, seed plate number, seed roller name and size, and gearing ratios. You can also add info like, "Rover radish is the best red radish." These notes will be stored in a place where it's easy to come back to and find when you need it.
Schedule yourself a reminder to come back for flaming, or just to see how the seeding came out. When a planting comes up a little too sparsely, it's easy to change the specs on the spot so that you'll remember next time you seed it. This is especially useful for crops you might seed only once a year, like Gilfeather turnips for storage!
I used to try to record this type of information in a little waterproof notebook I carried around with me everywhere, but I gave up on it one spring when I opened up our tool shed and discovered that it had been incorporated into a mouse nest over the winter... Besides, that notebook was one more thing to keep track of (not to mention the pen). I always have my iPhone with me, it's always handy, and I never misplace it.
