Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

June 15, 2006 - Take Pictures!

You never know what you are going to see in your garden. If you do a 15 minute walk about of your garden as I do twice daily, you might see just about anything from the critter that is eating your beans to a wide variety of critters just visiting your garden. Pictures tell more than words so if one of your plants is doing something odd take a picture for troubleshooting. If you find an undentified insect or plant and want to know whether it is friend or foe take a picture. Chances are very good someone else has encountered that problem or insect. However pictures are not just for troubleshooting. Get close-up of your plants. Add the pictures to your garden journal along with your comments. For that reason I make it a point to never go into my gardens without a camera!

Happy Gardening
