Super excited. I'm a planner person and I've been trying to combine all of mine so I don't have so many. Im my son's boy scout den leader, do my dad's bookwork for his business, I'm disabled so the amount of Dr appts that I have is ridiculous to keep track of, both kids are in sports all year round, and I started container gardening, and then my faith planners that I use for bible study and so forth. I tried to find a planner for gardening alone and couldn't find one I liked so I made my own on graph paper and did it that way. I'm excited about your upcoming planners and think you did an awesome job for your first one. Being a planner person I can truly appreciate the amount of time it takes to even get this down on a computer program. A couple pages I would like to suggest is a page for seed inventory, harvest inventory, pests and fertilizers, and then I actually am a very visual person and since I can only do container gardening due to back pain and issues that I can't be bent over with the container gardening allows for me to do it while sitting in an office chair and then I can roll around my driveway and another chair upstairs for what containers I have on my window shelf. My two children help me but my son kept pulling one or two carrots a week last year to see if they were done yet soooooo I only had 4 full grown ones. Lmao. He's 8 and just learning with me and he didn't understand the process of how they grow underground vs above like our tomatoes, I didn't either, fully, really so I'm glad he pulled them so I didn't have to :), but I have a page for all containers i have so i can pull that page out while I'm planning this year and I write what's planted in each planner and how many seeds were planted vs how many make it throughout the season. Then I also have another page that is more personal and I don't think can be generalized but I hand draw the size and shape of the container on graph paper and then on another piece of graph paper I hand draw the layout of my garden, where I put my containers. I do have a couple flower beds that my kids, rather more my son, cleared out and he's going to plant what he wants in those bc I physically can't garden them so I told him why not. Sorry so long. Just a couple suggestions for next year. I love this one though bc of the simplicity of it though and bc it is more simple I can use it for just about everything, except my faith journaling I do in travelers notebooks. So..... way to go. !!!

coxangela, bullet journaling has been a complete game changer for me as well!

My main planner is my leuchtturm1917- it's my second year with my bujo and I have never been more organized. This year, I also split off a planner for NGA's work. While my appointments and schedule all live with my leuchtturn , the nitty-gritty planning, the reporting, and the future ideas/plans all live in the big black notebook that you see in the video.

Great ideas for more gardening-related pages for next year. I made note of them- thanks! Thumbs up
