My plan was to order a garden journal to keep track of everything happening in the garden this season. I looked at etsy.com to find one, but everything I liked was international shipping and I didn’t really want to pay more for shipping than the actual item cost.
So instead I searched for chipboard notebooks and found just a plain one that I liked. I decided to decorate the front myself. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s mine. I plan to add monthly calendars and some pockets inside the front and back covers as well.
All I did to decorate it was use a few Sharpies to draw what I wanted on the cover. I decided on tomato and basil because those are my favorite things to grow. My lettering is not fancy. I would love to take a caligraphy class sometime to actually learn some skills, but this will work for now.
I’ll also continue to post garden updates here to help me keep track of the progress. I’m still so new to this gardening thing and have lots to learn, but I’m loving it so much. Just my tiny garden brings me so much joy already. I can’t wait until it starts producing and we can harvest our own food.
