I know it’s still snowing in many places, but here we’ve had crocuses blooming for weeks now, so of course I’m thinking about gardening. 🙂
Last year I started a gardening journal, and I’m finally getting to the point where I can look to what I wrote last year to compare to my observations this year—it’s very rewarding! It’s also reassuring, especially in regards to my stairwell peppers plants. Last year I was so worried my jalapeño was dying, but now I can look back and see they’re actually doing a little better than last winter.
For my journal, I use a midori traveller’s notebook, which has a simple leather cover and replaceable notebooks. I got the passport size, because it fits in my back pocket. 🙂
I also got a cute mini printer for Christmas this year, the hp sprocket. It seems a little silly to print photos for a handwritten journal, when, after all, I could just add them to this blog, but I enjoy physical objects and flipping through books.
You can see my indoor plants featured in this page spread. I just bought them in January, but my pothos has already grown! I would love for it to get all vine-y like some I have seen. I’ve been lucky so far in that my dog is not at all interested in eating them, but I suppose if he does I can put them up above my windows.
I hope this has helped everyone get excited for Spring!
