O sorta enjoy sitting and making graphs and designs, makes me feel like I know what I am doing*LOL
I usually do not make concrete plans for what goes where at the time I graph or draw. Here is a simple lay out of my pond area. I draw then scan and I can make more copies as the years go by or the ideas, usually the ideas *lol
Because I cant help myself I have to change things around as I mature in the gardens. I use to be extremely wild and crazy now I'm looking for a more neat but wild look*LOL
I just have fun with it when the soil is too wet to work.
I just sit and play with designs. Sometimes at night I will just go over records and try to remember what went on. I cant believe I forget!!!!!!!!!!
It is so frustrating!
That is what I do for every bed! I also graph it & take a pic close up and distant. I use to find close ups and had no clue as to where they were*LOL. Oh, I have several spirals and when I misplace one I use another, I do start from the back for different subjects/ plants. Or bend triangles in a page .I find red spiral 500 pages works well and labeling the cover with masking tapes makes the eyes find it quicker*lol Always putting it in the same container when done writing for more then an hour. I use to know I wasn’t done and leave it everywhere thinking Ill get to it .I did nearly loose everything due to rain. The umbrella was nearly useless.
Needless to say I have several books packed with information. I even go to all roses many times and write what they are doing and then again to note how long the roses lasted. It is really time consuming but I love it and will enjoy the journal in years to come. Lists are the only thing I use my computer for.Pics are all in named folders either dates or months.
I am yet to figure out how to folder my pics. Do I make a folder for each rose*LOL
Do I put all veggies in weekly folders or monthly folders do each veggies get their own folders? Right now I have the pics by month; I can keep track of all those folders thousands of pics. I am good with a few months the beginning March to early May then Aug then November .whatever else I have needs to be searched for .
The main problem I had was my stupid printer kept starting my folder numbers from the beginning. So I have tens of folders in each month named 100 all pics are named the same.!
I have a real HATE love relationship with my computer*LOL
I wish I had the pics in my hands I can organize in a minute this clicking around makes me insane!*lol
Blooms I keep them with "monthly" to remind me along with my note book that will tell me what bloomed when.And what I need to balance my plan for next year or now.
