Recently, I was struggling with guilt because I hadn’t maintained my garden journal…Keeping a record of seedlings, soil, plants, weather, favorite vegetables, etc.
One day, I was skimming through my photos and remembered I had been sending photos and garden updates through text messages. I had been keeping a journal after all! Sharing the garden photos and news was effortless, because I was excited about the process. For me, journaling the information on paper wasn’t exciting nor fun.
If I want to excel as a gardener, I must keep good records. This is my second year, so it feels like I’m at the toddler stage of experiencing new and wonderful things…and, I want to share it with everyone!
To get to the next stage, I’ve got to learn to breathe, listen, learn, and grow a little more (me, not the plants!).
