Yes, today is April 1st, and this post is a light-hearted attempt to get you gardeners excited about using various Office programs to plan, plot, and perfect your garden. Really!
When spring has sprung and you've finally flung all your sweaters and boots into storage,When the buds on the trees make you fall to your kneesto plant carrots and cabbage and borage
It's that time of year to get out the geargrab your shovel and pruners and spade,get the digger, the feeder, and hose, and the weeder& the mower to shorten each blade.
But how do you track what to prune, what to hack,all those schedules for watering and feeding?With Excel as your aide, you relax in the shade(it does everything but the weeding).
Yes, that's right, yes you heard me, I said it out loudExcel is your own garden gnome:Make your lists and cross-reference your perennials of preferenceuse a spreadsheet to help you at home.
Let's say you've just started and haven't yet charted how to lay out your veggies and herbs,the ground is there waiting, just anticipatingto be tilled, to be turned, and disturbed.
A bare patch of soil invites so much toilwhy not make it easy to do?give Visio a shot, it can diagram your plotand it's customizable too.
Those unreadable notes stuck in pockets of coatslisting nurseries and experts you've knowngreen-thumbed women and men, never lose them againwith OneNote you're never alone.
The moss in your hair and that deck chair out theremake me think that it's time for a partySo think up some friends and use mail merge to sendinvitations creative and arty.
If your garden's not quite still with Office you're readyWhen the vines start their climbing and twiningRound your heart they will wind and with Office you'll findApril showers all have silver linings.
Soon the sunshine is sunny and you've spent all your money on tomato starts, basil and thyme,And speaking of time, I've run out of mine, so I'm about through with this rhyme.
And here are some gardening templates to get you started. Happy gardening everyone!
