The year ahead starts with a trip down memory lane ~ Mike’s Green Garden 2007-2014 some highlights

I’m working on a new version of the 2018 garden journal called the 2018 Spring Garden Journal that just covers March through December to come out on the first day of spring! And guess what it will only be $8.95 total. Amazing what just taking a 2 months out made!

But I wanted to add some planning ideas and advice if I could. Not much because its supposed to be your journal but a bit about what Mike will be doing. So I’m asking him what he would be doing and it hit me look at our past pictures. So here’s some of our garden journey photos over the last years.
