year after year Feb 11, 2005
this is my first year doing a proper jurnal for gardening i do live in ny but here our weather has been weird so im going to track it like the author suggested in the book The essintial earthman i have a big property so this is helping me keep track of what i have were and being as certian plants shouldn't be planted in the same spots year after year (do to bugs disease etc..) i figured this will help me track my progress and learn what area of my garden is best for what, and when to start my seeds and it realy only take a few minutes each week. i think its a great way to spend time in the morning eating breakfast on my deck with a cup of tea looking over the garden, or in the evening spending some time sitting on the swing after weeding or watering the plants, to make a few jots in the jurnal
