I have kept a gardening journal the last few years. In it I keep track of what has worked and not worked, times of the sun patterns and hours of direct sun I get on the various parts of the yard, the yield produced in my raised vegetable beds and my ideas for the next year's garden as well as other things I've learned along the way. I joined our local horticultural society where we meet once a month. Guest speakers and master gardeners speak on various topics. I've learned alot and the price of the membership for the year ($7.00) is well worth it !
I call my journal my "right size book". Since we are always learning new things and getting new ideas, keeping track in one spot sure helps. My gardening journal is not anything special, a regular inexpensive lined note book, 5 1/2 " x 8" -- just the right size to carry around and jot down ideas as they present themselves.
