Organize your homestead and garden in 2017 with printable Homestead Management Planner sheets for your homesteading binder!
They call it the “simple life” for a reason and in 2017, you can get ducks in a row, plan out what needs to be done and when, keep better records, and increase your efficiency (as much as one can on a farm with animals!)
For 2017, I’ve updated all of the old templates with a bright, new clean look, made changes that will increase homestead productivity, added even more new sheets, updated the calendars, and best of all created a fall seed sowing calculator as part of the incredibly handy Seed Sowing Calculator where you can customize to your own first and last frost dates to get approximate seed starting dates for both your spring and fall plantings!
2017 Homestead and Garden Management Printables
INCLUDED IN THESE DIGITAL FILES ARE:
110 PDF printable worksheet pages:
❁ HOMESTEAD YIELDS- Record & compare previous & current year production totals and see the difference in your yields every year!
❁ VEGETABLE GARDEN YIELDS- Same as the “Homestead Yields” but tailored for the backyard or urban gardener.
❁ SEED STARTING CALCULATOR (Excel document)- Enter your first and last frost dates to get specific seed sowing dates, including hardening off, transplanting, direct sowing, germination times, days to maturity, fall sowing dates (if applicable), and a section for notes. Calculators for spring & fall sowing as well as for herbs.
❁ PLANT GROWING SUMMARY- Record your growing observation and take notes for cultivating specific plants.
❁ SEED INVENTORY- Take stock of your seeds and record what is in your inventory, year purchased and from whom, and make a note of whether you need to purchase new seed for this year.
❁ VEGETABLE GARDEN PLANNER GRAPH PAPER
❁ HOMESTEAD & GARDEN CALENDAR WITH NOTES- A 2015 planner-type calendar sheet for each month with a section on each date for notes and weather observations.
❁ YEARLY SCHEDULE- Make a list of what tasks need to be done on a monthly basis. For example, we change our deep litter chicken bedding in March, June, September, and December and keep track of that here.
❁ THIS MONTH AT A GLANCE- Like a monthly to-do list, spend a few moments at the beginning of the month and go over what you need to accomplish each month for sowing, harvesting, preserving, in the barnyard, or in the home.
❁ OUTDOOR TO-DO LIST
❁ EXPENSE RECORDS for the Garden, Bees, Goats, Sheep, Pigs, Beef, Dairy, Layers, Broilers, Rabbits- Record your expenses, suppliers, unit price, as well as transfer over your yields to record the cost per pound of production.
❁ INCUBATION CHART- Keep track of whether you remembered to turn your hatching eggs, the day you started incubating, expected hatch date, and average hatching times for various poultry.
❁ MONTHLY EGG TALLY CHARTS with a YEAR END EGG TOTALS CHART- Record your laying hens egg totals each day and then rather than keeping each page in your permanent record, transfer the month-end amount to the Year End Chart for easy total egg production each year.
❁ YEAR END COST ANALYSIS- The top page in my records for past years. This quickly shows each area of production, yields, cost, and the price per pound. Seeing this all laid out neatly encourages me to improve yields and reduce cost each year.
❁ FREEZER AND PANTRY INVENTORIES- Keep records of your freezer and pantry stockpiles.
❁ FOOD PRESERVATION WORKSHEET- Set goals and record your food preservation accomplishments for the year.
❁ 2017 HOMESTEAD AND GARDEN CALENDAR- A 2017 wall-style calendar sheet for each month for homestead and garden use. Take notes and record weather conditions for each day of the month.

Make note of heat cycles, medications administered, changes in weather or diet that could affect production, etc…
❁ YEAR END DAIRY PRODUCTION RECORDS- One for goats and one for cows record the final dairy totals at the end of each month and then tally them up for a year-end figure. Also record key notes about your animal’s reproductive year.
❁ RABBIT PRODUCTIONS- Track your rabbit breeding program. Print a sheet for each of your does to see how they add to your enterprise and who is the biggest asset.
❁ HONEY & BEEKEEPING- Record your observations during visits to your hives. Record total production yields, costs, and profitability.
