The Gardening Notebook REVIEW and GIVEAWAY!

Garden3

When Angi from thegardeningnotebook.com and scheiderpeeps.com offered me an opportunity to review and giveaway a copy of her new e-book The Gardening Notebook, I leapt at the chance.  After all, I am passionate about gardening but yet, despite my total administrator personality, have had little success keeping track of my garden successes and failures from year to year.  In truth, this blog has been the best record of my garden to date, with photo updates and posts about vegetables I have grown and loved.  Sure I have a garden journal, but my entries are few and far between, and it lacks any framework of organization.

The Gardening Notebook is divided into several sections: first, practical tips on the how-to’s of gardening, such as Enriching the Garden, Pests, Problems, and Solutions, and Plan.  Next, the e-book includes printable worksheets with cultivation, pest, and harvesting and storage tips for the most common vegetables and fruiting trees, along with space for your own notes.  Finally, there are over 50 pages of printable worksheets on topics such as garden layout, planting by frost dates, a garden calendar, garden expense worksheets, and a monthly journal.

For those wanting to get truly organized about their gardening, The Gardening Notebook is a great tool.  What I really appreciate is that the user can print what they feel is necessary or interesting to them, and create their own personalized notebook. I, for one, would love to use Angi’s guide to create a go-to calendar of when to plant each vegetable, by month.

Angi has offered a copy of The Gardening Notebook to a Homestead Honey reader!  Here’s how to enter:

1.  Leave a comment below.

2. For an additional chance at winning, “Like” Homestead Honey on Facebook, and LEAVE A COMMENT HERE TELLING ME YOU DID SO.

A winner will be selected by Monday July 8th at 8pm CDT.

Comments are closed.  Congratulations to our winner, Libby!

Many thanks to Angi for this opportunity!

  4. This is my first attempt at gardening. I’ve learned lots of helpful tidbits from Angi’s blog but need all the help I can get.

  5. Teri, I loved your comment about being very organized in general but not in garden record keeping. I am the same way! It would be great to try out the gardening notebook. I tried to “like” you on facebook- hopefully it worked =)

  6. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog. I’m nearing retirement age and and looking into other sustainable occupations after I leave the teaching profession. Not quite sure what I want to do yet but I’m enjoying reading about your homesteading adventures. Thx

  7. Whata GREAT idea…I always try to remember from year to year what I have done in the garden, and always struggle. Would also love to have new ideas, etc.
