"iVeggieGarden is unique because we have a real passion for growing vegetables, and the app is based on our own firsthand experience. Part of the problem with some other gardening applications on the market is that they were developed by companies that produce video games," said Leslie Sturgeon, owner of Moorit Software, LLC. "My husband and I have a small sustainable vegetable farm in Central Massachusetts, and we sell our produce at three local farmers' markets. I also work full-time as a software developer, so I've combined our farming expertise with my technical skills in developing this app."
Key features include a catalog of over 500 vegetable varieties; complete growing info for all vegetable types; planting dates by climate zone; pest and disease info including sustainable control tips; a shopping list; integrated online shopping for seeds; purchase tracking; garden planning; tracking of key dates, notes, and photos for each variety in your garden; a glossary; powerful filters, and more.
iVeggieGarden also has the advantage of being perfectly portable. You can bring it out into your garden and take notes and photos on the spot, bring it to your local garden center to help you decide on seed purchases, or take it on a flight and read about new varieties to grow.
iVeggieGarden has already seen sales across the US and in countries as diverse as South Africa, Australia, and Croatia. An iPad(TM)-optimized version and an Android version of the app are planned for later this year.
