Good Morning Spring!
It may not feel quite like spring yet,
but just the thought of those mild temps,
sunny days and thawing soil makes
my green thumb tingle!
Being a bit impatient to get this gardening
season under way, I popped into the dollar
store to if they had seed packets yet.
So I bought some of everything! I'm
determined to fill every nook & cranny
in the yard with something edible!
But before I plant even my first seed,
there is a very important task to be completed!
My garden journal!
Keeping good records is a key
factor in successful gardening.
Your garden journal will become your
trusted companion. Noting important
details such as:
- frost dates for your area
- lists of herbs & veggies you want to grow
- planting dates
- garden bed designs for sun & shade areas
- correct spacing for plants
- soil maintenance
- pest control
You'll make note of your plans for plant rotation,
companion plantings, harvest amounts and possibly
Maybe even including some drawings or recipes
along with tips & advice given from more
Of course, any notebook can serve as a garden
journal, but as a crafter, I needed to alter &
embellish mine before starting it for the new
|garden journal using papers by|
Echo Park (For the Record) and
embellished with washi tape & faux stitching
