The Garden Journal includes;

I personally love the monthly organizer calendar page that allows for tracking weather patterns as well as the seed starting chart. I like having the chart out and readily available in my seed starting area.
I absolutely love Nature Hills Nursery. This are an amazing company to work with. When they asked us garden bloggers what our readers needed, I told them we need a free garden planner to offer!
A week later, I get an email that the FREE 2022 Guide to Gardening was created!
