|Every year with your garden is a learning experience. You've grown new plants and tried new techniques. Some have worked and some haven't but along the way you've grown as a gardener.
For the coming year, consider keeping a Garden Journal. Choose a notebook with a calendar, keep records of everything from planting and harvest dates to weather information, and take a few pictures of your garden throughout the year. Make notes about how you intend to do things differently next year, keep a "map" of your garden so you can find those plants you intend to move after they die back, and mark problem spots as
the year progresses. The journal will be a valuable aid in planning your garden in the years to come.
