You can select either a pre-planned garden or input your garden size and create your own. You will be given planting instructions for the veggies you choose and when your are done, you can either print it out or email it to yourself.
The gardens are set on a 1 foot grid pattern so Square Foot Gardening will work great here.

The site has other useful planning guides as well.

We live in an apt and so we container garden. But it looks like there are a lot of good ideas that I can modify to fit our needs. Thanks for the link OP!

Looks like it's based around raised beds, and has a limit of 50'x50'.

Have done some poking around online but still haven't found a program that lets me plan out a garden quite the way I'd like. This one feels like "third grade" when I'm looking for something more towards "college level".

The garden I'm planning is aprox 1 acre in size, not just a small square foot deal.

For now, I'll stick with my 2' X 2.5' graph paper.
