Happy September, Crafty Friends!
Did you plant a garden this year? If so, what did you plant, and how’s your harvest coming along? Did you enjoy success with your crops this growing season? or did the bugs and birds eat your harvest before you had a chance to?
To those of you who did plant gardens, I hope your plants flourished, and that you enjoyed harvesting a bounty of delicious, garden-fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs or a rainbow of delightful flowers — whatever it is you planted.
Have you been keeping a garden journal to track your gardening successes and failures? If you haven’t already started, now is the ideal time to create a garden journal while all the details are still fresh in your mind. By planting time next year, you might have forgotten some of the details about what you did and how you did it.
Sadly, I don’t have a garden this year. 🙁 But when I am actively gardening, I routinely make garden journal pages to keep a record of what I’ve done well (so I can repeat those successes) and about what went wrong (so I can try a different approach the next season). I also like to keep a record of what I planted where, so that I can be sure to rotate crops effectively the next year. My garden journal also incorporates to-do lists that keep me on track on what needs to be done in the future.
If garden journaling is of interest to you, I invite you to check out more of my garden journal pages and read more about my process for making them.
If you maintain a garden journal, I’d love to know more about what you record in it and how it has helped you achieve your gardening goals. What do your garden journal pages look like? The floor is open for comments, so please feel free to ask questions or share insights in the comments area below.
Thanks so much for visiting! I truly appreciate your presence here.
