A gardeners reference library:


This little shed addition is not just a place where my son keeps his gardening utensils…it‘s his reference library too.

When he showed it to me I thought immediately of passing this idea along to all of you out there whose memory is not what it used to be.  I’ve discovered that most of us can use a little help in that area.

Gardening has become an avocation for my son.  He is constantly experimenting and adding new flora and it seems that every time I visit he’s changed a location or added something new. Since so many of the plants are ones that he may never have heard of before, or might be a new variety of an old familiar one it could be hard to keep up with it all … but not since he’s implemented
this great way to keep it all straight.

He calls it his gardening reference library …  a compilation of all the seed packets and product tags of the items he’s bought over the years and he‘s posted them on the inside of the shed door.

Isn’t that clever and it’s an idea that could be adapted to so many other areas, not just gardening.  For instance, I’m using the inside of a cabinet door in my kitchen to post the birth dates of all my friends.  They are amazed when they get a card from me and I cross my fingers behind my back and tell them that having a good memory is a gift that I was born with!!

Let us hear about your clever ideas … I’ll bet there are lots of them.
