Garden Journal Book Review

In this post I share my personal experience with documenting in writing (you know… old school with pen in hand) and how it is important to continue that tradition.  I’m also giving you the chance to enter a giveaway featuring  The Garden Journal, Planner and Log Book by Joy Kieffer so you can begin documenting along with me in 2016.

Garden Journal Book Review

Garden Journal Final Front Cover

I fell in love at first glace of the colorful cover on this garden journal book.  Many of these colorful veggies I have grown in my own home garden or they are on my wish list.  Unfortunately at the time I do not have a hand written journal to share about that experience.  With the past 9 years of the online / social media explosion and working so hard to document digitally I put my hobby of documenting on paper in journal on hold.   With inspiration and guidance from this publication that I will continue that trend I sat aside for many years.

Any book that has ~ is going to be used by me daily in my creative growing journey because I live by that in my 18 acres and when I help others with their growing adventure.
