Creating a garden is a great way to get outside and enjoy nature. We have a small vegetable garden as well as some fruit trees which the kids help to water, fertilise and of course, pick and eat what we have been able to grow. To help encourage our kids to get out in the garden more, I created this gorgeous Gardening Journal, which is a great fit for people of all ages.
This gorgeous Gardening Journal contains over 40 pages of printables for you to use to create your own lovely journal for your garden.
In this printable pack, you will find:
- 3 different cover pages for you to choose from, one has a green background and the other two a white background
- This book belongs to… page
- A note page for each of the four seasons
- A page for you to draw your garden layout, though you may need to print a couple of these. We did one for our side yard, one for the backyard and one for the other side yard.
- A Garden Checklist. This checklist is quite basic which makes it great for kids.
- A Today in my Garden page. I recommend you print this page multiple times and fill it out when you like. It does not have to be something that you complete every day, once a month would be great.
- Plant Information. This is a great page that would be needed to be printed out every time you plant a new seed or tree. It contains information on the name of the plant, correct spacing, sun exposure and when to harvest. It also has a place where you can write things that you would do differently, if you were to plant it again.
- This second plant information page is for pictures. By drawing your plant at different stages of its life, you can see how it grows and how long it takes.
- Insects of the Garden. A great page for drawing pictures of insects in your garden which you can then research when you want.
- Birds of the Garden. A great page for drawing pictures of birds in your garden which you can then research when you want.
- Monthly Weather Chart. There are four different versions of this page. This is a great way to record the weather each day, and see how much rain or sun you received for that month. We printed out twelve of these to place in our journals.
- A monthly watering chart. Here you can mark when you watered your garden and even when you added fertiliser. It is a great way to record this information so that your plants are watered too much or too little.
