Notes go out of date order

Really useful app, for the novice vegetable / herb grower. Have grown more things this year and been recording my progress weekly in the notes. However, I have found that when I add notes, the notes sometimes get saved out of date order for some vegetables and yet remain in full date order for others. This happens even though I update and save my progress notes for each item, one after the other?

Great App for vegetables

Great app for vegetables. Would be great if they would allow you to only see tasks outstanding each month rather than all tasks and determining whether ticked or not. Also would be great if you could set a repeat function eg for repeat sowing on lettuce or peas for 2 week etc. But really good start and best one I have found. Be great if it is extended (or a separate app) to include flowers shrubs etc.

Perfect for my plot !

I wanted a planner for my allotment as I don’t tend to forget what needs doing to what and when ! This is only the first day but the promise is good and a very good range of vegetables and has the ability to repeat for next year. I admit that the gardening plant side is poor but there again it is called ‘Grow Your Own’ so that is where it is coming from. There are a host of other apps (including RHS) that helps with garden plants.
