4. Only partial shade: planning my seeds

My bullet journal has been helping me with my gardening. I have written down all my seeds writing down all the information from them into my book. As a dyspraxic I remember information with clarity if I physically write it down. I find that writing notes and lists means I can focus clearly on the jobs I have to do, I also really love planning.

Shade is a big factor in my garden at the moment also room to sow. I have two windows that are good for growing, my bathroom and my dining room, neither make my husband happy. I currently have two beautiful daffodils hiding from the snow by my sink. He is less than happy but know I adore them and they won’t be there forever. The rest I left outside.

Garden Bullet journal

I wrote down the name/names what sun they like and also what height they grew at, so I know where to plant them in the beds. On my monthly calendar I plan what I am doing in the garden weather depending. I also write a shopping list of what other bits I may need, like more soil, canes and pots, which let’s face it, you always seem to need.

I bought some cheap seed trays that have already split, buy cheap buy twice, then I found some really strong ones in Sainsburies and now I wish I had just invested in them. I have four good ones and 3 paper thin plastic ones. They will all be used. It’s just me strong ones will last for years instead of a season.

Planning for shade just takes research.

I am currently listening to the Sara Raven podcast and loving it.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
