Keeping Track of Your Garden Beds and Plants Using a Camera

Many gardeners need a way to easily keep track of their garden beds as well as their plants (especially if they are hybridizing). With camera in hand, I came up with two ideas that have worked for me.

If you for some reason or another cannot be strict in stat-photo-stat-photo order (or for me usually plant - nameplate) just take a useless picture from f.e. the soil before starting the next plant and you have a nice separator. Works especially well if you are photographing look-a-likes where you cannot be sure where one series stopped and another started.

Ruud - That's another good idea! Thumbs up Thanks!

I like my clipboard photo because the "white" jumps out at me. I photograph more than just my daylilies, so the white clipboard is my alert that another daylily cultivar is being evaluated and the photographs are to follow.

Considering the placement/planting of cultivars in the larger photo of a raised bed ..... Overall, I try not to plant cultivars that have similar looking blooms near each other in my raised garden beds, just to try to prevent confusion as to where exactly in the bed a cultivar is growing.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
