My Garden Plan

The weather here in northern Utah has finally started to feel like Spring, so it’s time to focus on this year’s garden! Every year I try and come up with a new system of organization for a gardening plan. My favorite way is featured in August 2017’s issue of Wilma Magazine. It’s a gardening scrapbook journal that’s organized by year. I know not everyone is artistic or likes to journal, so I designed My Garden Plan as an organizational sheet. It’s perfect for those who want to keep a written record of their yearly garden without having to journal or be artistic.

My Garden Plan is a one page worksheet with places to keep track of which seeds to plant; the date you plant them; and any special notes or instructions. There’s also room for a plot plan sketch (if desired). The sheet can be copied and used again and kept in a binder organized by year. If you’re a pen and paper kind of person (like I am), then this will make you very happy! I’m a big proponent of anything hand created (even hand-written, for that matter). It’s a record by you that somebody will cherish one day!

My Gardening Plan is also a great way to build excitement about what you’re going to plant this year. The saying is really true that “One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.” ~~W.E. Johns

  1. a very simple and not intimidating garden plan. right now, we just cleaned our garden still undecided of what to plant. but personally, I want to plant some lettuce, tomatoes, and maybe add some more herbs. RIght now I have a potted basil, oregano and tarragon but i think it will be exciting to have rosemary and laurel too. i will try this garden plan and see how it will help me. thanks for this!
