I was wondering if anyone know of a good printable table or a spreadsheet file which lists all the vegetables and herbs, their watering requirements, light requirements, season, etc.   All the data possible all in one place so I can glance at it when needed.  Trying to grow several things this fall.

Try visiting your local extension office...every county in my state has one and they have a good amount of info. for those who seek knowledge in all things agriculture.

It's not all organic based but good information to have handy.

Almost all of them are the same for sunlight and water. 6-8 hours and one inch of rain/watering a week. Spinach can handle a little shade. Season is going to depend on your location. pH level requirement is dependent on crop. Might be better off making your own. That way you won't have to scan through 60 veggies when only 20 of them are of interest to you or have info in it that doesn't apply or that you just don't need.

You might start here; https://garden.org/apps/calendar/
Input your zip code and that will give you planting dates for Spring and another set for Fall. From there, click on a veggie name for more growing info.

As Ty said, your extension office will have info that applies to your locale like what varieties do well there.

Thanks for this.  I found the Oklahoma State University Extension web page, with a lot of info on it:

I sort my seeds by when they should be planted. For example, 8 weeks before first frost, 8 weeks before last frost, 4 weeks after last frost, etc.
 
The glass is neither half full or half empty. It is too big. But this tiny ad is just right:
