Slow and steady

Seasonal life means I’m having to squeeze my time on Hortomatic around the work of a vegetable garden exploding with growth and seeing to the other projects that fair weather brings back to the fore: this year is another house-building year!

I’ve been extensively dogfooding Hortomatic this planting season, and it’s really helping me polish the flow of the application to make getting data, and the right kind of data, in as smoothly as possible.

Work carries on, slowly and steadily. Expect another prototype later in the season.

Add Planting redesign

The Add Planting iterface was one of the first parts of Hortomatic to be made, and as I’ve been using the application for my own garden, I’ve been finding it quite unintuitive.

Hello from Hortomatic!

As a food gardener trying to be (mostly) self-sufficient, I’ve always wanted a tool to help me plan my garden, track my crops, predict ripening times, keep track of weather data, and so on, and I’ve never found a tool which really helps.

Hortomatic is my try at creating the tool I so badly wanted and couldn’t find.
