From year to year, I never seem to remember when the daffodils first appear, when the japanese maple starts to bud or when I pruned my roses at the beginning of the season.
Although I have tried several times over the years, I have never been able to maintain a gardening journal for more than a few months. In many ways, AGN, functions as my journal, but even then I don't refer back to past entries as much as I could.
In an effort to remember the gardening events of this year, I have taken to entering them into the calendar of my Sony Clie as repeating yearly events. These then will provide automatic reminders next year. I am hoping this will remind me to enter even more data in coming years, creating a perpetual calendar specific to my garden.
