I want to grow our food. My reasons are countless. As soon as I list them, there is another reason to add. To save money, to eat more naturally, to teach my kids the importance of nurturing something, to learn one more skill that will save us from the zombies. You can see how it goes.
The big problem is that I have a lot of information. Why is that a problem? It is all over the place. It's in books, on Pinterest, and straight from the mouths of other, well weathered gardeners. My experience is growing, as well, and I really need somewhere to record that also. I have decided to collect it all in a book.
|my chaotically organized list|
I am using a standard sketch pad. Why? I like the thicker pages and I think they will hold up better after a lot of use. Not just that, but I want to be able to glue or tape pictures to the pages. I think this will be helpful to identify pests or show different stages of growth of the plant.
