Addressed usability issues that surfaced with iOS 5.x.

App Description

Featured as a top gardening app in major U.S. news and lifestyle publications.

Developed on a small farm, to help you grow vegetables!

It's finally here - a comprehensive reference, planning, and tracking application designed for gardeners at any experience level.

iVeggieGarden was developed by people who have a passion for growing vegetables. We've relied on years of first-hand experience to identify the most relevant information about vegetable gardening, and organize it into an effective, flexible, and easy-to-use product. We've also provided helpful tools that allow you to track the progress of each item in your garden, manage multiple gardens, build a shopping list, track purchases, and more.

It's the perfect resource for looking up answers to questions, and for capturing garden-related data, notes, and photos while out "in the field."

And, in the off-season, it's the ideal tool for researching and planning your next garden.
