Rooted in Observation: The Garden Journal

Keeping a garden journal is a wonderful way to document and enjoy one's garden. Colleen Miko will share why she keeps a journal and what she's learned from 25 years of chronicling her Port Orchard garden.


Whether you're experienced in journaling, or would like to know how to start, you'll learn different styles and techniques for creating a personalized garden tracking system.  There are many simple options to choose that allow you to be more organized, and productive no matter what kind of gardening you love.  You might even find, as Colleen does, that the very act of following the garden through a journal, brings great pleasure. 

Colleen pens her own blog Verdure:
