Spring here and I have a long list of things to do. Too long to manage, I think. But I also want to keep track of what I do to serve as a guide for next year. Obviously, I want to know when I planted what and how many and where I planted it.

Right now, I have a master spreadsheet with all my planting dates, varieties, etc. I also have a journal where I try to keep track of what I do each day. I also have a to do list app. I know it's too many systems, but I'm trying to figure out a good workflow to be able to use the assets about each methods.

How do y'all keep track of your planting information?

I use raised beds and mark on the raised bed what is planted in it is case my paper record gets lost.   And, of course, I keep a paper record.   I don’t bother with electronic records.

I use a biodynamic almanac and follow the dates and times noted in it for when to sow, transplant and harvest for storage. To keep track of things I make a simple hand drawn map of my garden and listing what is planted where. This helps me identify a variety that did well, as I am continually thinning the herd so to speak and selecting for whatever variety of tomato or squash for examples that grow better than others. I do save some seed and replant and select for a landrace variety acclimated and performing well for my sunny hilltop garden here in Tennessee.
