I subscribed to this email reminder by the Almanac and it's WONDERFUL!   I'm so busy and scatterbrained that I invariably get things started too late so hopefully this year they will keep me on track.   I don't think they sell their email list because I haven't been bombarded with other solicitations.

Tailored to your zip code, they send periodic emails (monthly I think)  to remind what needs to be, or can be done, in the near future.  You put in your zip code and it provides real-time projected frost dates, frost and moon  seed starting dates for indoors and out, xplant dates, etc.  

Here's a sample of what I just received:

Susan, that is an awesome link.  I have been sucked down the rabbit hole of gardening info clicking on the different veggie links after entering my zip code. I like the details. When you click on lettuce, for instance, you get planting info and then can follow another link to get indoor planting info.  Very cool, but I may get nothing else done this afternoon and I was only supposed to be taking a break for a few minutes😀

Thank you!
