Why Keep a Garden Journal?

Starting a garden journal is like opening a door to a world where your garden helps you grow too.

Journaling is a form of meditation for me that allows a glimpse into my subconscious mind. As I write about my garden I learn about my instincts, habits, and dreams.

When I journaled about my first plant, I didn’t just learn about gardening tips. I discovered a way to be happier and calmer.

Writing in a garden journal helps us slow down. It makes us think about what’s around us. It helps us enjoy the little things, like the taste of veggies we grew ourselves.

It’s about drawing plans or sharing how a perfect flower made us feel. It’s not just about keeping track of plants. It’s a chance to connect with nature and take care of our minds and hearts.

So, writing in a garden journal can lead to a happier, more peaceful life.
