Whether I'm asked that question in an excited voice or with a worried expression, my response as a Master Gardener is always the same: "You should write down what you're noticing in a garden journal."
That's because our lives are busy, and it's hard enough to remember recycling day, much less when the neighborhood daffodils appeared. But when you start recording these botanical events, you'll notice natural patterns from year to year. This info can help you choose plants and figure out when to time gardening chores, such as when to jump on those spring weeds.
Here's what you need to know about creating your own garden journal:
- You will make smarter plant choices.
- You will make better choices in the timing of your garden chores.
- You can share your garden with others.
- You can keep better track of what you planted, when.
