KID'S GARDEN JOURNALING TIPS AND IDEAS Here are some Garden Journaling tips to get you started and to help you keep your journal organized. Click Here to Make a Garden Journal
STARTING A JOURNAL It's a great idea when planning to plant a flower garden to start a garden journal at the same time. You can have a record of your garden experiences from the very beginning. Keep thoughts of your garden from spring planting and summer blooms through to fall and winter. Winter is wonderful time for garden reading. It also gives gardeners time to write about gardening, and time to plan their gardens for next year. You can keep a garden journal all year round.
-Write the date when you make an entry in your journal. For example: Monday, March 27, 2006
-Taking before, during, and after pictures are a great way to keep records of your gardening progress. Put them in your journal when planning and starting your garden. It will show you how much change has taken place since you began your garden. It's amazing to see how hard work and a love for gardening can turn a soil filled garden plot gradually into a beautiful flowering garden overtime.
-Keep a record of the weather for each day and how your garden plants react to certain weather. Than you can look back and remember what type of weather you had from year to year, and how it affected your gardening. It is interesting to see how the weather patterns change too. For example: Today was quite windy, and very hot. The garden needed an extra watering today!
-Note the date when you planted your garden in the spring after the last frost, and when the first frost comes in the fall. These frost dates are an important guide for next year's spring plantings.
-Keep drawings or diagrams of your garden plans for your garden in your journal.
-Keep a record of where you planted seeds and flowers with diagrams or photos.
-Record the date when seeds sprout, and the plant name of that seed.
-Keep a record of what plants grow well in your garden, and what plants did not.
-Keep a record of lessons learned for future gardening help.
-Record any work you did in the garden for that day.
-Write your thoughts about your garden for that day.
-Write about how your garden has grown.
-Include anything that you have experienced while gardening with words, poems, descriptions of flowers and scented blooms, photos, and drawings...whatever comes to your mind when you look at your very own garden!
THERE ARE NO RULES WHEN IT COMES TO JOURNAL WRITING! WRITE IN YOUR JOURNAL WHAT YOU FEEL OR WHEN YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU WANT TO EXPRESS.
NOTE: A PAGE CAN HAVE MORE THAN ONE ENTRY FOR THE SAME DAY, OR PAGES MAY HAVE MORE THAN FIVE OR MORE DAYS OF ENTRIES. TRY TO WRITE ON THE SAME PAPER UNTIL THE PAGE IS FULL TO HELP SAVE PAPER.
