Whether you've been gardening for ages or you're just setting out on your first venture into the world of plants, this guided journal provides a place to track all your garden chores, dreams and observations. Each month of the journal provides room to record upcoming chores, dreams you have for your personal space and the many wonders you observe in your garden throughout the year. Although numbered by week, the pages are undated so you can start your journal any year and any month you like. The My Garden Journal includes.... * Space for planning your overall gardening goals over the coming year. * 20 pages with areas to plan your garden layout, sketch an interesting flower or critter, or doodle when the weather is too nasty to get outside. For those with minimal artistic skills, you can use these pages for garden images from magazines or photos of your own garden as it grows. * 12 months of seasonal garden tips to give you an idea of what you may need to do in your own garden. The tips are followed by space to plan out your own garden's to-do list for the month. * 52 weeks of pages to record what's growing, how the weather has been, what you did that week, what you observed and any other garden news you want to record. * Room to imagine what next year's garden might bring. While the My Garden Journal can't turn you into a master gardener, it will make you a more organized and more observant gardener as you keep track of your chores, dreams and observations.
