Do you struggle to remember how many vegetables you need to plant to feed your family?
Always have way too many vegetables or not enough?
Vegetable Garden Calculator will come to your rescue!
When planning your garden one of the most difficult things to determine is how many plants of each vegetable to plant. We've come up with this tool to help show you the average number of plants you need to feed your family. These are just average numbers so if you really like a certain vegetable feel free to plant double or triple the amount.
We cover over 90 vegetables and herbs. For each one we tell you how many you need to plant to feed your family. You can also add them to “Your Vegetable Garden” and see how many to plant for each one, all in one place!
We also provide expanded yield information for several of the plants!
It's a great way to plan out your vegetable garden and insure you aren't planting too many or too few vegetables.
The full list of items we currently support is Apple, Artichoke, Asparagus, Banana, Basil, Bean, Beet, Bell Pepper, Bread, Bread Crumbs, Broccoli, Brussels Sprout, Cabbage, Carrot, Cauliflower, Celery, Chard - Swiss, Cheese, Cherries, Chocolate, Cilantro, Coconut, Corn, Cucumber, Egg, Eggplant, Endive, Fennel, Garlic, Grapefruit, Green Onion, Greens, Honey, Leek, Lemon, Lettuce and Salad Greens, Lime, Mango, Melon, Mint, Mushroom, Nut, Etc., Okra, Onion, Orange, Oregano, Papaya, Parsley, Parsnip, Pea, Peach, Pear, Pepper - Hot - Jalapeno, Pepper - Hot - Poblano, Pepper - Hot - The Rest, Pepper - Sweet, Pineapple, Plum, Pomegranate, Potato, Pumpkin, Radish, Raisin, Raspberry, Rhubarb, Rice, Rosemary, Rutabaga, Sage, Spinach, Sprouts, Squash - Summer, Squash - Winter, Strawberry, Sweet Potato, Tarragon, Tomatillo, Tomato, Turnip, Watercress, and Yams.

What's New in Version 1.1
Lookup table, not calculator
It doesn't seem to take into account how much of which plant you might be eating. For example, if I'm on an all carrot diet, I better have more than 15 carrots to last me a year. I will need fewer carrots as I diversify into other veggies. A genuine veggie calculator should tell me how much to plant of a particular veggie per person per year (or whatever time frame, but it should tell me the time frame). And since the amount of food I need to eat doesn't go up as I add plants, the calculation I expect is to rejigger the numbers so I get the right amount of food as I add new plants to my diet. A lookup table is ridiculous and useless for planning quantities.
Missing 1 thing
Calculates to feed you and/or family for how long? 1 week? 1 season? 1 year? Please clarify how long calculated food is suppose to feed a person.
Handy Little App
Came in really handy this spring when I was laying out my garden. Turned out to be pretty accurate as well.
