The Art of Journaling: Keeping a Gardening Journal



Every year since I started a garden, I’ve told myself that I should keep a journal of what I’ve planted and when. To record what worked and what didn’t.

But I haven’t yet and I’m not sure why. Maybe because as the days get longer I get so excited about being able to stick my hands in the soil again that I end up forgetting to take notes.

At the end of last year, I was so eager to pick new varieties of seeds from the catalogs that I didn’t think to write down my plans for this year’s garden. Right now, this is coming back to haunt me as I have no clue what I was thinking when I bought zucchini and butternut squash because I have no idea where to put them.


Do you keep some kind of garden journal, or any written record of what you grow? Does one format of notebook work better over another? It seems as though a spiral book might be easier to work with if you want to fold the pages back while taking notes in the garden. See a variety of spiral Rhodia options here.
