    I made something similar on the calendar that came on Windows 10. It kinda worked, but I got where I slacked off and never finished it. On the few items I did complete, I put a alert in the calendar to remind me when they were supposed to be getting close to being ripe. If I had followed through, I’m sure it would have worked well…lol

    Haven’t had the best of luck growing in Missouri. Bought Clyde’s planner! Hopefully I’ll be able to eat things I grow this year! Thanks for the tips.

    Today I’m going to plan the layout for my garden. I buy plants at the nearby Mennonite community. I usually go with my daughter and it makes for such a beautiful way to spend the day. I direct sow my seeds. I can’t wait! Where I’m at today the windchill is going to get as low as -40 degrees, yes 40 below 0 F. There is hope though, the days are getting longer and there are all these "getting ready to garden" videos.

    Yep! I’ve kept a garden journal for several years now. Last year I bought a personal printer (2" x 3") and I put pictures of our progress and harvest in my journal. It’s been a wonderful visual reminder of what we did each day or week.
