Garden journal.

Last year we started a Garden Journal, a place to job notes about new projects, ideas for the future, copies of plant tags, receipts, dreams, etc. I felt a little bad as the energy to keep it updated petered out once the season got going, but in hindsight that's normal; Mother Nature takes over from there. As a new spring approaches, it's great to look back and see what didn't work, what worked differently than anticipated, and all sorts of other things.

I'm most thankful for keeping the tags on the raspberries. We want more of the same: fast growing plants that even in their first year threw impressive thumb sized berries with a rich sweet flavor that had us picking at them daily, enjoying what small harvest they yielded right from the vine.

  1. What is the name of the raspberries? I'm going to get some new plants for my garden this year. Thanks, Betty
