Re: garden documentation

I use an Excel spread sheet to keep track of seeds I plant. Planting 10 seeds of anything is a major crop for me--usually I plant two or three. But since I plants lots of twos and threes, I would totally lose track of what I think I'm doing if I didn't write it down somewhere. And the math functions make Excel the place to do it--easy to calculate germination percentages and days. I can even extend the spread sheet to include transplanting/grafting, flowering, and fruiting.

Probably ought to start another one for cuttings, especially since some things take forever. or nearly, to root.

interesting... I really need to get this done soon. As
some of you know, my yard will be on a pre-tour for DH
international group... although they will be looking
at the trains (ha! he better get working on them!), my
thought was to have some kind of handout with the
plants listed by location. Probably never happen in
time, but ......

Hey Kitty.... what is the easiest way to do this?

What information I include for my garden rooms is
fairly basic: cultivar
name and common name.  I don't need to add location
to these documents as
they are organized by location.
