How to keep track of your garden + an E-book giveaway

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.

So begins the introduction to my newest Ebook, the Gardening Notebook. When Angi of Schneider Peeps approached me asking if I was interested in an advanced copy I jumped at the opportunity.

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.

    Ahhhh a good way to track your garden is important. Every year I try by scribbling down in some obscure place when I planted seeds……….and it falls by the wayside because I loose the paper!! Two thumbs up

      I am trying to establish some kind of system. My biggest garden fail last year was not labeling my actual seeds well enough and guessing which seedlings were which. Rookie mistake!

  2. Vicki B. says

    I am the same way. I have to look every year when to start planting. I have to reread about most of what I grow to make sure they are started the best they can. This ebook looks great!

  3. Kristin M says

    I start planning my garden in January or February & keep all my notes in a notebook so I don’t forget anything!

    I’d love to win! I just moved to a new USDA zone and have absolutely no idea how to garden here. I need all the help I can get to prepare for this spring. Thanks!

  5. Julie says

    I am relatively new to gardening, and am just at the start of figuring things out. Some things, like tomatoes, have worked out great for me. Others (like peas) have been mostly failures. Thanks for the giveaway. :)
