Spring will be here before you know it! In fact, it’s already arrived in many growing zones around the country. Gardeners are beginning to fill their pots and trays with soft potting soil and tuck the first teeny tiny seeds into it’s depths with the hope of what is to come. And hope there is! In fact, never is a gardener more full of hope than at the start of the year and the beginning of the growing season.
Rather than pests or drought, we only see baskets of ripe tomatoes and bush beans, brightly colored sweet peppers and bouquets of dahlias. Hope is what drives us to plant seeds, trees, and flowers over and over and over again. With that hope in mind, I wanted to share with you a gardening journal we’ve created to help you in the pursuit of bounty and beauty in your garden. In this exclusive gardening journal, you’ll get:
- A summary of your year in the garden and what you’d like to accomplish
- Monthly garden planners to track notes, events, to-do lists, notes, and reminders
- Monthly calendar planners to document planting dates, sowing dates, notes, or yields
- Customizable plant care sheets with care instructions
- A pruning schedule
- A planting schedule
- Garden layout grid to draw out and plan your personal garden
- Blank garden journal sheets
All the pages have been left blank so that gardeners from around the world, regardless of their growing zone, can utilize it specifically to their area. Also, feel free to print the pages as many times as you like. If you’d like more of any given sheet, simply select that one exclusively to print. I hope this will make it easy for you to easily customize this garden journal to fit your needs. I, for one, will be using this as a documentation of planting dates and harvest yields this year – something I’ve neglected to do in the past, much to my own destruction. Each year, our knowledge in our gardens grows and this is in no small part to the information and knowledge we carry with us from the previous seasons. The more we document, the more we carry through with us to improve our next garden! I would encourage you to put it in a binder, carry it with you as you go about your garden work, tape tags or notes or seed packages in as you need, and build something beautiful!
Happy gardening, my friends. Here’s to a great season and a great harvest!
