Keeping a garden journal is one of the most benneficial things you can do outside of the keeping the garden. If your at all like me, I garden the best every new season. The trick to this is learning from my mistakes. Now, with three homeschooling kids, I know that relying on my brain to keep things tucked away till next year is NOT the best way to improve every year. This is where my journal swoops in and saves me from my past mistakes!
