Garden Journal

With all this talk of keeping notes on seed planting and garden plans I eventually looked out a garden journal I had bought some time last year. It now has details of what and when sown in the note section at the back. It's got different notes on aspects of gardening through out and divided into the garden in seasons hopefully I'll keep up the notes now I've started.

No real gardening today but a beautiful day to be outside, put up another feeding station for the birds and while doing some other bits and pieces outdoors the racket that was coming from the old ash trees on the lane was amazing. Ducks seem perfectly at home on the pond splashing and diving and the swans are gliding around problem is that watching them becomes addictive.

Noticed daffodils are now beginning to peep up in through the grass and there are lots of bulbs popping up in the beds and pots which will be dropped in once they come on a bit further.

Plan to soak some of each of the six different sweet pea tonight and hopefully sow them tomorrow evening and will remove the Cosmos Seashells Red and by the look of it the cauliflower as well from the propogator in the morning to the utility room window sills.

Picked up a diary today, want to keep notes on seeds, all going well. Plan to keep note on how all the new plants I am trying, and notes on what I pick up on the site.

The cover on that garden journal would make you not want to use it as it looks lovely.

I started a written journel from spring last year.  So glad I did.  One thing that I will be adding to it this year is good ideas and plants, I like from my friends journals on this site. 

Glad to hear the new ducks are making themself at home your blessed to have all that wildlife around you.

I love the garden diary idea. I have been keeping on since 1995. It is an interesting log of the changes and developments in the garden. I love to look back and see the progress made. It is also a good idea to take photo's every so often. In the old fashioned sense, i.e. once a year!
