Journal Your Garden Progress to Become a Better Gardener

    Wonderful! I’ve been using the garden planner for years. This is a fantastic additional tool – plus I love to take pics of my garden. Thank you.

  2. Janet Johnson on March 6, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    The Garden Journal is free, but you have to subscribe to the Garden Planner (which is not free) in order to access the journal, correct?

  3. Ulla Oudrup on March 6, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Free or free for 7 days????

  4. Erika Donald on March 6, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    How do I see the harvest totals for a particular veg that I have been journaling harvest details for?

  5. Steve Phenald on March 6, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Awesome. Finally something I can use. Thanks

  6. Preparing ForSHTF on March 6, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Sounds just like what I need. I had started using Microsoft’s OneNote but this is so much better. I have one concern can you freeform enter plants where an appropriate variety choice does not exist in your database?

  7. Erika Summers on March 6, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Would be a great app I would pay for. For now I’ll visit your website

  8. William Aitken on March 6, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Is this another site of Harrods its the same guy

  9. Shahida Gul on March 6, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Where is link to the free app

  10. Benja's Uber 1337 Hobby on March 6, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    I am quite confused. Is the website free but then I have to pay for the app? Have you not updated the website to give me the right link for the free garden journal app. Or is the app not free?

  11. D Abernathy on March 6, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Am I missing something? I use both the Garden Planner and the Journal, love ’em both, buuuut, I am unable to bring the Journal to my Android based phone, had the same problem with my Android based tablet. However with the tablet I simply used another friendlier one (ASUS). I would like to use my smart phone, any ideas.

  12. Ken Shaw on March 6, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Bravo! This will be invaluable!

  13. Ian Webb on March 6, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Hi tech (cell phones, tablets, computers) wont be here forever. I prefer pen and paper.

  14. Sandra T on March 6, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    you guys are genius, thank you!!!!

  15. Robbie Summerour on March 6, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    This is great!..The record keeping is easy, and I can use it thru a browser on my Android. Thank you.

  16. Qwert Zuiopü on March 6, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    very intersesting!

  17. Lee-Roy Castermans on March 6, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I’d download it immediately if i weren’t so inconsistent/lazy xD

  18. David Haynes on March 6, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    It looks easy-I have subscribed and will try it. Thank you.

  19. Elaine Lerner on March 6, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    This is one of the best ideas I’ve heard in quit awhile! Well done.

  20. Ian Berkley on March 6, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Been looking for a Journal as I’m currently using Google Keep. Will give it a try, looks excellent 🙂 !

    Is there an app to go with this or do you need to log into the Journal via a web browser? Ta

  21. Sajad Ahmed on March 6, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Its a good idea. Is it on appstore.

  22. Sandra Clark on March 6, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Do you have to have a paid subscription to keep the journal entries? Or is it free after the 6 day trial?

  23. Jennifer Intrav on March 6, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Very Cool!! 😍

  24. Beaguins on March 6, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    The journal seems like too much work. The online planner is enough for me.

  25. Pia Beier on March 6, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Hi 🙂 thank you four your nice video’s
    I hope you got the time to answer my question. I have some problems with my transplants. The look good in the box but wen I put them ind to the garden they just dies? So what am I doing wrong?
    It’s different plants. I transplanted butternut, they got white and died. Then Chard, they are just laying ther?
    I give water every night. Because the whether is weary warm and dry at this time. 24-30 degrees in the last 5-6weeks and no rain.
    I live in Sweden so sorry for my English 🙂

  26. PrettyAliceMoon on March 6, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    How do I get the app? I can’t find it on the iPhone Apple App Store. I would really love to be able to use this so I’d appreciate your help in finding the app. Thanks.

  27. Mark Baker on March 6, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Like others I’m confused…. I use the GardenPlanPro application on my iPad and iPhone and it looks like the journal functionality in those apps is very simple note taking which is not at all like the web browser based function shown in the video. Maybe you could update us on how to whether the new journal features described in the video apply to the GardenPlanPro application. Thanks!

  28. Caleb Cologna on March 6, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Glad I checked the description and comments before checking the app store. Not sure how much my feedback will aid but I’ll give it a fair shake and see what I can come back with. In fairness, I was first hoping for more of a gallery of pen & paper journaling structures because they’re only as involved as you want them and there’s no unwanted clutter but this seems promising.

  29. timbo1404 on March 6, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I see how to get this Journal on my PC but agree with others with the confusion over the app for iphone (or android) – I searched on the app store and see nothing, so how do we get that please?

  30. Shih Tzus Rule on March 6, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    It’s not an app. From what I gather it’s through their website (which I’ve never been to, yet, will fix that). You can’t take your PC into the garden and you don’t want to run back and forth taking notes, kills the convenience, you could take your laptop but it won’t fit in your pocket and you have to drag it around with you and you’ll need wifi for pc/laptop. My memory would not last until the end of the gardening, So…. you use your smart phone. Open up your web browser, go to the website, log into your account/profile use your journal. No app. You’ll either need wifi from your home wireless router or use your data while you’re outside if the wifi (if you have it with your home network) doesn’t reach as far as your garden. It’s free. I’m a note taker. This is cool. Notes during telephone conversations (business not fun), for ideas I get, notes to myself to do something that I will do in a couple of days, always jotting something down. My organization/filing stinks, though. A lot of now where didi I put that? It was right here. I have trouble locating it afterwards if it’s not part of the stacked mess on my desk. This is a good idea. he could get it a patent and get it developed as an app. People would buy it. He might not even have to develop it, the website would be a good enough test market and license it to some techy company that does that thing. should do it quick or someone will steal it and make the money off of it. I hope he reads this.

    The software is well worth subscribing to for any allotmenteer or vegetable gardener, although the login and response time can be cumbersome.
    The videos are an ideal length but I could not find a simple way to post a comment on the creating a bean teepee.Here I would add,always wear thick gloves when pushing in bamboo stakes, otherwise you can get a terrible bamboo splinter across you hand that may require hospital treatment.

  33. Vickie Butler on March 6, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    I can’t find the garden journal app. is there an exact name for it?

  34. Benni L on March 6, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I would like to add a comment with the gardentask. If I plant out a plant in the garden, I also want to write a comment on where I planted it.
    If i sow I want to comment where I sow it ( indoor, outdoor or in the greenhouse) and when I fertilized what kind of fertilizer I used.
    A comment please and I will use it.

  35. Richard Parnell on March 6, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Looks good, Is there going to be any integration between the planner and the journal.
    It would be great if your plan put a reminder in the journal

  36. Trish Ricklefsen on March 6, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    What is the name of the app? I don’t see it in the AppStore.

  37. elenasym10 on March 6, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Thanks for this addition to the already useful Garden Planner (I am a subscriber)! I already started using the Journal and I would find it useful to have something like "Pest Control" added to the "Tending" category, so that I can add when I apply what to my garden.

  38. Enrika Pačėsaitė on March 6, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I think I already love it 🙂 I’ve been waiting for it for a long time… Congratulations! Eager to explore all the features. I hope to see some statistic based on a plant during the year and some other graphs 🙂

  39. Jersey Guy on March 6, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Thanks for creating The Garden Journal! It looks terrific, and I can’t wait to use it!

    Because I garden in three locations: Home Garden, Community Garden and Mom’s Garden, I’d love to be able to document results in three separate Journals. Can you add that as a possible new feature? When do you think it might be available?
