5 Benefits of Using a Gardening Journal

Using a gardening journal isn’t necessarily a new concept, but many people don’t take advantage of using one because they don’t see the point. I’d love to share the benefits of using a gardening journal and show you why using one can enhance the way you garden.

5 Benefits of Using a Gardening Journal

A gardening journal will help you create a realistic plan.

If you’ve been gardening for quite some time, the you can probably think back to the over-zealous days when you wanted to plant 50 different things, only to realize that was super overkill. Gardening sounds all fine and dandy until you find yourself with a bunch of dead plants and hundreds of dollars gone down the drain. Using a gardening journal will help you write out a reliable plan so you can see your gardening journey from start to finish.

You will know what to expect.

With the right kind of templates, your journal will help you know what to expect. You’ll be able to document what your garden should look like according to the region you live in, as well as keep a to-do a buy list of important supplies, resources, and tools. When you know what to expect, there really isn’t anything that can catch you by surprise.

A gardening journal will keep you organized.

Organization is a huge key in running a successful garden. By having printables such as a monthly harvest calendar, seed organization chart, and seeding tracker (just to name a few), you won’t have to try and memorize everything you’re growing. A good chart, tracker, and organizer template will also help you keep up with where you planted things in your garden.

Take notes and observations.

This is another aspect that isn’t thought of too often, yet, it can be really beneficial. Observe, reflect, and takes notes often of what you see in your garden. Also document what plants grew the best, things you may do differently next time, and what worked. This will come in handy with each passing season.

Use a gardening journal to help you learn along the way.

Even the most advanced gardener will tell you there is always something new to learn when it comes to gardening. Keeping a journal will help you learn things along the way and create a handy resource that you can turn to time and time again. Overall, a gardening journal can also be used by your kids to help them along their gardening journey as well.
