My mom is very organized in her home. Every closet, drawer, room, or cabinet are all in order so that you can find every item because it’s in a logical place.
The same goes with the way she keeps record of things – like the perennial plants in her yard. She has a special Gardener’s Journal where she records any plant, tree, or bush that put in their yard. She cuts out a picture of the planting and adds it to the page, along with:
- When it was planted
- Where it was planted
- If it was moved to a different spot
- If it was removed completely and why
How clever is that?! This would really refresh your gardening. A book like this helps you to remember:
- the specific name of each plant or tree out there
- how to care for the plant
- if you are able to get a refund for it because it died.
If you happen to move from that place, you could leave the journal for the new home owners so they’ll have that valuable information!
I usually snip those tags off the plants and bushes when we put them in the ground. Now I know what to do with them – they’re going in my Gardening Journal!
Are you a gardener? Do you keep track of your plantings?
Have a wonderful weekend! Refresh your heart by being in church Sunday!
