I've been hesitant to keep a gardening journal. A few obsessive compulsive reasons have prevented me.
- I like my journals to be pristine. In the past, my perennial garden sketches have been placed in sheet protectors. That way I don't get them dirty as I'm outside - usually with muddy garden gloves on. This year, I'm living on the wild side and the water spill that wrinkled the paper above doesn't even bother me.
- I didn't like the idea of mixing a permanent page (garden plan) with a more temporary page (to-do list).
- Recipes, of course, go in the recipes binder, not scribbled in the journal.
- Temporal things (like seasonal veggie garden plan) should never be mixed with a permanent thing (like the recipe - that shouldn't be in the journal anyway).
