Garden Journal

This Garden Journal serves as a written and visual record of what’s planted where in the Garden in the Woods, and how it’s done over time.  By contrast, blog entries (click on Home at the top of any page) are updates on what’s happening at the moment.

The Garden Journal is broken up into chapters, each of which is a chunk of the garden.  This makes writing about an entire acre more manageable, as one small chunk is easier to document than all the garden at once.  Chances are it’s easier to read about an acre a small chunk at a time too.

As each chapter is completed, the links below will begin working.  To return to this page, either use the Back button on your browser or click Garden Journal at the top of any page.  The image on the right is a copy of our property plat over a Google maps photo with numbers added to indicate the location of each Garden Journal chapter.
