The Homestead Garden Planner | Mama on the Homestead

Growing a productive garden takes time & planning.

This garden planner is perfect for planning your garden, tracking your seasonal produce yields, keeping track of your seed inventory, and referencing quality info about your USDA hardiness zone and simple composting for your garden!

You will have the option upon checkout to choose the landscape or portrait layout.

The binder spine is also included in the download.

Garden planning is more important than you may think.

If you just throw seeds and transplants out and pray for the best, you might be able to enjoy a small harvest… BUT with a little planning, you can maximize that harvest for your family. If you want to sell produce, planning is a must!

For YEARS, I gardened without planning or record keeping properly and I spent SO MUCH money, time, and energy to receive very little in return.

My “black thumb” became a running joke in our family UNTIL I learned to plan and keep records well.

Once I dug my heels in, my garden’s productivity took off and my family never made fun of my growing skills again. I call that a win, friend!

That’s why I’m SO excited about the resource I am about to share with you!!

I want YOU to find the same success through planning that I did!

To get you started with that, allow me to introduce The Homestead Garden Planner, the all-in-one garden planning pack for homesteaders!

What are People Saying About The Homestead Garden Planner?


Everything you need. I especially love the USA Garden Zoning Map with temps as I’m moving to the States and this is something I’ve been worried about getting my head around!

Not usually, but occasionally I will make simple custom orders. You can always feel free to message me with requests to see if it is something I can work in.

All you need to do is print out the sheets (one-sided OR front-and-back), hole punch them (or use sheet protectors), and stick them in a binder! You can even laminate the sheets and use a dry-erase marker if you wish.

I do not have an editable PDF, but I do have The Homestead Management Planner in spreadsheet version! Check that out here.

I do not have options for hard copies at the moment.

Unfortunately, I am unable to offer refunds on any digital products.

Don’t let another season coast by without intentional planning!

Start planning and recording TODAY to see growth and improvement in your garden yields from season to season.

Who Am I to Talk to You About Garden Planning?

Jessica Quinn | Mama on the Homestead

Hey, there!

I’m Jess and I was once a failing gardener.

I referred to myself as having a “black thumb” and my husband made fun of me for killing everything that I tried to grow.

When I took the time to look at WHY I was failing, I realized that the issue was in my lack of planning.

I threw seeds or transplants out all willy-nilly with no real rhyme or reason.

Keeping track of the garden’s productivity or issues like disease or pests didn’t even cross my mind. I would always quit and “try again next year”.

I FINALLY got sick and tired of wasting my money and time on plants that would die before producing anything edible. That’s when I created my Homestead Garden Planner. I have updated and improved the planner over the years and I LOVE that I now get to share it with you!

A Little Recap…

The Homestead Garden Planner is PERFECT for the homesteader/gardener who loves pen + paper record keeping, wants to take control of the garden, and wants to increase productivity year after year!
