i am pleased to report back with happy garden news after last week's weather woes!
the sunshine has returned and i have declared that it is officially SUMMER.
while i was waiting for the rain to end, i did an audio evernote inventory and sketched of all my empty pots in my journal to plan my garden.
the rain took so long to leave that i also took diphone photos and made a watercolor + ink rendering of the inventory...
...i am a visual thinker/learner/planner.
i use little sticky notes to play around with possibilities before deciding on the final choices of plants...
...this may seem meticulous, ridiculous, and utterly non-spontaneous. but if i don't plan this way, i walk into the garden store and get completely overwhelmed. i have no idea what to buy, how many of each, or where i will plant everything.
this little project helps me avoid plant shopping chaos and enjoy the entire process more.
after i finish with the sticky notes, i'm going to purchase and plant this weekend. and once i do that i will update the painting by writing the official plants on it.
but really fun.
so...are any of you growing gardens this summer?
if so, did you plan it all or go with the flow?
