NewsWatch 12's Rachel Tiede joins Master Gardener Ronnie Budge to learn how keep great gardening records.

Good record-keeping can help produce a better garden and is a way for gardeners to reward themselves for their accomplishments

Vegetable gardeners should make a chart to show where they planted which vegetables so they can rotate locations year to year

To do this, make a drawing of your garden plot and either:
o Write the names of vegetables on the drawing or
o Label each area with a number or letter and make a list of which vegetables you grew in which area.

Vegetable gardeners should also keep a separate record of each kind of vegetable they grew with pertinent information.

To do this, you can use a loose-leaf binder and:
o Use one page for each variety of vegetable
o Record the dates you planted seeds or transplanted starts; how long till seeds germinated or vegetables were harvested; when/how you fertilized; how vegetables tasted; etc.
o Refer to the binder when ready to plant again next year

Flower gardeners may want to make:
o A diagram of the garden that shows what flowers are planted where
o A record of what flowers bloom when, what colors the flowers are, how long they stay in bloom, how tall the plants are, etc.
o During the winter, look at this info to decide what plants to add, remove, or relocate
