Have you ever wanted to create a garden journal?
It’s amazing how helpful it is to keep a record of your garden’s life so that next year you can remember the little tricks that worked so well, and avoid some that didn't. Garden journaling can be as simple as keeping notes and pictures of the happenings in your garden, or it could be as thorough as recording measurements and writing about your garden daydreams. Keeping a journal strengthens your personal connection with your garden and helps you reminisce about the bright warmth of summer, while your boots and mittens dry by the fire.
A garden journal can be in any format with which you feel comfortable. Some gardeners use a bound notebook, attaching photos, seed packets, and notes; some use a three-ring binder to easily add pages and really anything else they want; and some even use an electronic tablet, taking digital pictures and writing notes.
