sanderson, December for me is the beginning of research and study season in my attempt to make a good gardener better or if things go bad to have the best reasonable guess or explanation as to where and how things went wrong. Dec., Jan., Feb., affords me the time to take a serious look at subjects and topics that I don't seem to have time for from March until Nov.

Dan, Do you keep a journal or notes? The first year I gardened (and it was using the SFG method) I kept a journal and it was fun to read it during the winter.

sanderson, if you are asking me if I keep gardening notes during the season, I try but the notes get fewer and farther between as the season progresses. I start my journal in Feb./Mar. with seed germination but the information thins as I continue to germinate seeds as I beginning potting up germinated seeds. My winter research ends up in binders of things printed off the internet or on flash drives if the information is contained in a pdf. Taking pictures helps in the recall of one year to another, great years with bountiful harvests as well as devastating years are easy to remember as though they happened last week.

My memory is as good as it ever was but the recall button doesn't work as well as it once did. I should do better at recording but I get caught in should I write down what I did or I should get more done. I always seem to have at least 10 more things to do. Even when I look as if I am sitting down doing nothing, I am busy composting. Every year half way through the gardening season I have a big blow out with my gardening secretary and promise to get myself a new one next spring but the same feller shows up and I give him another chance.
