Every year I keep track of my gardens in a journal of some-sorts. Papers ripped from a notebook and held together with zip-tyes, a photo album, or art sketch books from the store. This is my journal for 2013. An old linen dress I cut up and embellished with odd bits and pieces of lace, and satin from a vintage wedding dress. Tassels to tye it closed.
Slipped cardboard into the front and back covers then sewed around the edges
tea stained heavy art paper to use as the pages
bound the pages to the finished cover with dental floss and a strong tapestry needle
water colored flowers, favorite words and quotes on the pages
Now paste empty seed packets, draw plans for crops, the weather, add your thoughts, success and failures of plants. Animal births and sales, goals, have friends who visit your garden write their observations or thoughts and bits of wisdom.
