My Year- Round Garden Journal Prompts are the easiest way to reduce decision fatigue, garden stress and general overwhelm when it comes to your garden!
Gardening should be a JOY not another chore that is a hassle to get done every year.
Reduce Decision Fatigue
There are SO many decisions you need to make when it comes to the garden. And if you’re new to gardening, it is easy to get lost in all the things that need to be done. Last week, you forgot to water. Last month, you forgot to get more seeds. Last year, you couldn’t remember what variety you liked! Our garden journal prompts helps keep you on track with year-round, bite sized, and manageable pieces.
Reduce Garden Stress
For some people, the garden is just a chore. It’s something they do because they know the benefits. But for those of us that weren’t raised in the garden every year? It’s hard to stay on track with everything that needs to be done! Planting bumper crops, planning the fall garden, or harvesting the garden period, it’s a ton of work. Especially, if you are constantly trying to manage the chaos, instead of getting ahead of it.
Stop Getting Overwhelmed
I’ve missed planting entire sections of the garden because I got overwhelmed. I’ve completely forgotten about bumper crops or cover crops. I’ve literally stepped back and punted because I was absolutely exhausted and couldn’t step one foot in the garden without having a breakdown. Why? Because there were all these things to do, all the time and I was constantly chasing my tail.
Simple, Easy Prompts That Get You Back In The Garden You Love!
Every week you will receive two emails. The first goes out on Monday and is the initial list of prompts. The second email is on Thursday and contains the original prompts as well as quotes, extra prompts, encouragement or some variation of those.
We tested daily emails and found that most people became overwhelmed with daily emails, which is the exact opposite of what we are trying to do.
These prompts are based on season, so you will not be receiving emails about a fall garden in spring. We tried really hard to make sure that the prompts were as general purpose as possible, but still detailed enough for you to get in the garden and be successful.
The entire goal of the Garden Journal Prompts is to have year round tasks, homework, and journal prompts that reduce decision fatigue, overwhelm and stress.
My name is Leigh and I have ADD/ADHD. That means that my garden will get left to weeds before I ever get a chance to plant anything. Or I’ll have 18 toddler sized zucchinis before I realize the plant has produced it.
I created the garden prompts after our second garden was almost a complete failure. It wasn’t a complete failure because we were able to put up a couple batches of green beans and eat fresh cherry tomatoes, zucchinis, cucumbers and summer squash. The rest of the garden? Not so much.
But I was in the middle of a rough patch were I was trying to work overtime like crazy to help pay for some projects around the house. Plus take care of sick goats. Not to mention some work emergencies that I was dealing with. Suffice it to say, I was not in the mood to get in the garden.
But my garden has been, and will always be my eden. It’s my safe place, my restful place. So when it turned into the biggest stressor at the homestead, I knew something had to change.
So I started journaling
As time went on, I realized that these were helping not only my mental health, but also my garden! So I started keeping track of the prompts, added some tasks, and then homework. Over time it became this beautiful creation that got me back in the garden. It reduced my stress because I was able to focus on the things I loved and still make time for the things that needed to be done.
Since then, I have tested these prompts with friends and fellow gardeners to bring you these prompts. We have tweaked, changed, and removed. These 7 prompts a week, in email form, is some of the best work we have created and has changed the way a lot of people see gardening.
