The Organized Gardener

Carry a small digital voice recorder with you when you garden, either in your pocket or with your tools. Make “voice notes” of important things to remember, or to do later, as these thoughts come to you. Schedule a time at the end of each day to transcribe your notes onto paper or type them into the computer. These recorders cost as little as $15, are small (generally about 4” tall, 2” wide, and 1/2” thick), and lightweight (less than 2 oz.).

As I walk around outside, I am always noticing so many things that
need to be done. Later, I won't remember the entire list. So, a recorder
is a great idea.

Thanks, Larry. This year I haven't been organized at all due to unforseen circumstances ... and this is another good idea! nodding

Thanks, Barb! Good to know that this idea works with an Iphone and perhaps with other phones as well. Thumbs up
