Gardening is a simple, satisfying hobby, and growing your own vegetables is as delicious as it is frugal. Sprout Robot is a great free service that tells you exactly when to plant different seeds for best results: just tell it your location and sign up for the email reminders. With a few seed packets and some pots, you’ll have a garden ready in no time.
Sprout Robot also has a few paid plans. For a yearly fee, you’ll receive seeds and instructions by mail whenever the growing season begins. There’s a plan to suit everyone, whether you have tons of backyard space or just a few pots on the windowsill. You could even split the cost with a friend or neighbor and share the garden.
