instead of buying a garden journal....

a good third of the way through the growing season, it suddenly occurred that i should have been taking notes...notes on what grew best where, weather conditions, harvest quantities, etc.  this because it seems that the wet spring we had has encouraged earlier blooming for the chamomile, basil, & mugwort.  yet the bloom for the chamomile doesn't seem as heavy, just earlier.
i also had tomato rot last season. this season i used 'stop rot' for the time leading up to fruiting. not as much as i had hoped to as the weather was just too wet. am also using 'seven' this season on the cukes & cabbages. still waiting to see if this does anything to stop whichever little bastard is eating my cabbages!
the cucumbers didn't like the tomato trellis i put up for them to crawl on. john the postman pointed out that some of his cukes liked to climb & some didn't.  will try a finer mesh trellis next year as just letting the vines sprawl out takes up way too much space in the wee patch.
i promise myself that i will find my camera this weekend so that my daughter can help me load photos next week. promise....tues. for blogthought, weds. for garden.  am thinking that am occasional post on crafts, or maybe Craft later on.....we'll see.
