Some people garden to provide their family with better quality food than they could afford to purchase. Some garden because they feel a responsibility to the care of the environment. Some garden as a political statement. And some garden for the sheer enjoyment of it.
How did she know how much I enjoyed gardening, and how little I enjoyed planning? Have I blogged before about how I have to look up what USDA zone I’m in and what my frost dates are every. single. time because I always lose my random slips of paper containing this pertinent information? No, I don’t think so.
The Gardening Notebook isn’t just another book with instructions on how to garden. I mean, it does offer advice (like using newspaper to keep weeds at bay and how to prepare your soil) and general information about common fruits and veggies (like common pests and how to harvest). It’s main purpose, however, is to serve as a guide that streamlines your own endeavors, giving you room to jot notes and set reminders. And lots of printables.
Now you know I don’t just accept things for free unless there’s something in it for you too, right? Enter the giveaway by leaving a comment, gain a few extra entries for following me on my favorite social media sites. Oh yeah, and want to go ahead and buy a copy for you or a loved one? You can find the Gardening Notebook* on sale for only $4.98 through the month of February (after that it goes back up to its original $9.95).
