From The Far Woods (Sonya + Nina Montenegro):
We designed this Garden Journal to be the type of notebook we’d use ourselves. If you’re an avid gardener like us, you probably have notes scrawled on pads and scraps of paper stuffed all over the place. It’s hard to keep track of all these bits of information, so a lot of useful knowledge is forgotten.
After all, there’s a lot to remember from season to season, year to year. Which of the rows of lettuce you planted is the Romaine? What temperature was it on March 15 last year? When did you plant those tomato starts? Did you save those Calendula seeds last summer, or the year before? Did it rain at all last July? Now you’ll know.
Our Garden Journal divides each day of the year into three spaces for notes. You can write in your own numbers for the years. This way, you can start the journal whenever you want, and keep using it for at least three years. You will also find a section of graph paper in the back for additional notes, sketches, and so forth. Each new month is announced with a lively full illustration spread.
We hope this journal will be a useful tool alongside shovel, hoe, and rake. Happy gardening!
