The new Gardening Journal

We have to show you all our new addition to the Gardening Blog. Because we are still new to this gardening phenomena, we really needed somewhere to write all the stuff we had to remember and all the chores we need to do.  All the bits of paper we scribble on wasn’t practical because now you need a folder of sorts. So that doesn’t really work – you need something portable and compact.  Like a paperback book!  We could not find a  gardening journal ANYWHERE that we could say was easy-to-use and practical. We hunted around and decided – hey, why don’t we create our OWN gardening  journal. So, through New Voices Publishing, we have published our own book – THE GARDENING JOURNAL and here we share it with you!

It is full of places to draw, make notes, create shopping lists, add gardening chores, write reviews and nursery contact  information and also write down your research on what plants you like and what to plant in your garden – all on a monthy basis.  It is with me all the time!! Everything that I want to jot down or refer to is right here, in my journal!!

By Barbara

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Congrats on the book! I have just started a journal this year too – I’ve printed out photos, written my notes and things to do on the pages. I curious to see how it works out this year and if I stick with the journalling aspect of it. Looking forward to seeing your book. Any way you can post images of the inside pages?
Love your blog, btw!

What a great idea! And it looks nice and something I would like to make notes in. Even though I have my blog I’m not good at categorizing it and its not easy to look up ideas that Ive had and what I did when. I also hope you success at selling your work.

Congratulations on your new book 🙂
To be honest, I actually use my blog a little bit like a journal, and then regular chores tend to be along the likes of “water the dry looking things every day” “look for bugs/diseases” “trim off dead things”. Although with a balcony, I guess there is less to keep track of than with a whole garden!

Congrats on your book, and finding a solution to a common problem. I’ve often thought about a gardening journal. But, like you, it’s sometimes hard to find one that’s easy to use and practical! Best wishes for a successful book.
