The Best Gardening App – My Favorite FREE Garden App That I Love!

The Best Gardening App – My Favorite FREE Garden App That I Love!

In this YouTube Video, I go over my favorite gardening app that I just love, & it’s a FREE garden app! ↓↓↓↓CLICK SHOW MORE↓↓↓↓
Cog Hill Farm Merchandise:

I ran across this Free gardening app from our Alabama Cooperative Extension’s Facebook Page. And once I downloaded it, I just fell in love with it!!

My favorite thing about this gardening app is that It is so easy & simple to use. you plug in the county you live in & it will then let you know what you can plant in your garden right now!

The Garden app will also shows you everything you need to know about the crops & plants you are planting. It will show you how deep to plant, the spacing between the plants, harvest yields of that vegetable you are planting, & how many days till you harvest your vegetables.

The garden app also has other features like by putting in you zip code and telling you the farmer’s markets in your surrounding area.

And the gardening app has other features like, gardening tips, an ask the garden experts tab, and other features as well.

If this Gardening app isn’t in your area, you may want to reach out to your State Cooperative Extension & see if it is available in your area…my guess is this garden app is available for most if not all states, they may have to just set it up or turn it on.

You may want to also look on your State Cooperative Extension facebook page, bc that is where I found the free garden app.

Go to your app store & search SOW garden companion, and download via iTunes – Apple app store, or the Android app store – Google play store

I hope you enjoyed this video about the best gardening app, & i hope y’all have the best day ever & I really hope this app is available to everyone to be able to download to your phone.

Thank y’all!!

    Hope y’all have a wonderful day! And check out all our other gardening videos here:

  4. Mrs. Mags on March 14, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    The Utah State Extension does not have that app.

  5. Mary Heeran on March 14, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Not in New York

  6. colby cheez on March 14, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Just looked up app. We are in MI. We can download app but stats are not available in our state. Bummed.

  7. Gail Elwood on March 14, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    It doesn’t work for any other state than Alabama, so I just went to our NC state fb page and was shocked to find only 5 posts this year and the 6th post was from August 5, 2017. No questions had been answered at all. SHOCKED!!! Well, I posted and asked them about the Sow app. probably never respond to it either. Sheesh!

  8. Simply Jan on March 14, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    Darn it wouldn’t let me use it here in Texas. But it sure looks cool!

  9. María Santiago on March 14, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    We don’t have that application here for the state of Georgia only a website. 🙁 You also have to do a video about your goats and your newest addition. Another question, what do you do with the intestines and other parts of the meats birds that are not for consumption? I’m going to process my meat birds between the end of March early April and I’m not too sure what to do with extras on the meat bird.

  10. Stephanie B on March 14, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    Looks like Tennessee doesn’t have it yet! I’ll definitely call our co op though and see what they think!

  11. John Smith on March 14, 2019 at 8:47 pm


  12. Life On Beagle Road on March 14, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    Very cool app. We will have to check to see if we can find one available for PA. The Penn State Extension has to have something.

  13. Lori Marie Ice on March 14, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    Only for Alabama 🙁

  14. Ivan Mills on March 14, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Well Wisconsin does not have one. I did find one that Burpee nursery has that is nice. Just put in your zip code and save your garden. Thanks for the idea of a gardening app.

  15. Chris Barnes on March 14, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Great App, I didn’t know Alabama had this. Should come in handy.  Thanks

  16. Oldesouth Farm on March 14, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Have had it for some time… But of course I don’t always follow it because I just think I know more then the app does… LOL. Just a stubborn old goat lady… I planted according to it when most of my market garden got froze out. But we have had a weird year… and had all that rain in the summer that wiped out the tomatoes and cucumbers due to fungus. Just a weird year…

  17. John Norris on March 14, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    That looks pretty cool. I looked it up and it appears to be developed at Auburn University. I couldn’t find a version for another state.

  18. 50 shades of green on March 14, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    good day to you jason !! thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience with us today !! take care and god bless

  19. Aleza Johnson on March 14, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    It’s only available in Alabama……

  20. Phoebe Mckenzie on March 14, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    can you get it on the computer?

  21. Daybird Aviaries on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    MC needs more baby goats.

  22. A GREENER LIFE on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Too bad its only for AL 🙁

  23. Peggy Lindenthaler on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Do you think they have an app like that for Arizona?

  24. FallingLeaves on March 14, 2019 at 9:04 pm
  25. Martin Parmer on March 14, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Thanks so much for the App info, we’re about to move to Dekalb Co Alabama so we done put it on our phone!!!!

  26. Tami Lewis on March 14, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    No Sow app available in my Texas but I found another app to use. Thanks! 🙂

  27. Laurie Hines on March 14, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Cool App. Couldn’t find one for GA, but I’m the same zone (8a), so I may use this one.

  28. Peace Pocket Mama on March 14, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Only available for Alabama! You are cutting edge after all!

  29. Catherine Ward on March 14, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Downloaded the app to try out in NC. Will let you know if it works out. Thanks so much for the recommendation!

  30. Erik Johnson on March 14, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    TFS Great vid man

  31. shannon stephens on March 14, 2019 at 9:11 pm

    Is it for alabama only?

  32. Ron Larimer on March 14, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    Not in Ohio wish it was

  33. Jeff Evans on March 14, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Great video, it does not work for Florida. 🙁 Still enjoy ya.

  34. Tyler Homestead on March 14, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    Jason I was just wondering if maybe in your next podcast or a future video if you could maybe mention some of your favorite podcast that you listen to

  35. Karen Rossler on March 14, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    Hey Jason, thanks for sharing the app. I looked for an AL county that was similar to mine in SC, so I’m good to go!

  36. Mona cook-haught on March 14, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    I was excited about the App; unfortunately, it is not good for Ohio.

  37. Betten The Farm on March 14, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    Great ideas and app. Thanks for sharing

  38. Nicole Ambrose on March 14, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    Great App! Do you have recommendations on books?

  39. Masca Trails on March 14, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    Darn, couldn’t find one for NC. That app looks pretty freaking sweet though! I did get a recommendation from my state extension site for an app called BeeSmart to aid in planting pollinator friendly gardens. Looks like you can choose your zip code, then make distinctions like soil type, plant type, amount of sunlight, bloom color, and pollinator to get a list of plants you can plant. It also has info about how big the plants get and when they bloom… Could help you plan a continuous pollen/nectar supply for your bees.

  40. Andy Perrine on March 14, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    Good thing Peaches didn’t show her face, I’m looking for that Hussie after that Super Bowl pick!!

  41. Cheryl Shenkle on March 14, 2019 at 9:26 pm

    This is some thing new and only available in Alabama. "eXtension" note the different capitalization, is the national side of our county extensions and I’ll bet this is on their radar to get done but a LOT of work will have to be done first. It says to contact your county Extension to ask for it to be made available. Otherwise, always call your county Extension with questions about your garden problems. They are trained to find answers for you.

  42. Ivan Mills on March 14, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Well, I didn’t see Peaches. I hope she hasn’t let Brady and the Patriots loss keep her down.

  43. FirstDrops on March 14, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Love me some Alabama Family and Consumer Science ingenuity!

  44. Harmony Homestead on March 14, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    AWESOME!! Hope they come to Oregon soon. Thanks for sharing! 😀

  45. Life in the Sound on March 14, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    That’s awesome! Right now I lean on a PNW Vegetable Gardening book by Lorene Forkner and she maps out what can be sown directly, transplanted or what to start indoors each month. But this app would be awesome!

  46. Sheree S on March 14, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    Hey Jason! The app is In Florida is Florida Fresh! Very similar and super handy. 🙂
