WATCH YOUR GARDEN GROW
VEGA-TABLE is a program designed to help amateur gardeners get the most out of their vegetable plot by allowing you to plan the year's crops. There is a set of commands allowing you to define the size of your plot, dividing it into three separate areas for the purposes of crop rotation.
You can then decide when and what to plant in each area and the screen display shows the number of plants suitable for that row and indicates the correct distance apart for planting. The program produces a calendar showing when you should expect to be harvesting the crop and what yield you should achieve - slugs and the weather permitting.
Vega has included a list of the vegetables and details of each one. There are 42 in all and most of the standard varieties are included. The program should appeal most to the armchair gardener who loves to spend hours with seed catalogues planning an assault on the barren earth. It is easy to use and the graphics are reasonably attractive. If only it were as easy to produce the best broccoli in real life.
