Gardening Quick Tip: Keep a Garden Journal

Keeping a garden journal is the perfect way to keep track of all the little happenings that go on in your garden. Journaling allows you to record important information about your garden, such as where plants are located, the date you plant, pests you see, and which flowers and vegetables are faring better than others. Journals are a great place to include information tags, seed packets, order forms, and photos or drawings. You can make it as simple or detailed as you'd like. Some gardeners only record vital information, while others make it an artistic journey by sketching, using dried flowers, and writing down thoughts and prose. Whatever your style, this is your personal gardening journal so do what you enjoy. It's nice to be able to look back year after year and see the growth of your garden. And remember, having this kind of information will help you garden more successfully next year.
