KID'S GARDEN JOURNALING TIPS AND IDEAS

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.

Here are some TIPS to help keep your journal organized
-Keep a record of your garden's growing conditions:  soil type ,
pH level, light conditions, climate, and size.

your flower garden's growing conditions.

-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.

-When recording a list of flowers and plants you planted in your garden,
it is a good idea to record them by
botanical name and common name
of the plant for identification.

-Keep a reminder page for jobs that need to be done and when; such
as
weeding, watering, and fertilizing.

-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.
