Miscellaneous Monday – NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday! I’m sharing this photo of this lonely hollyhock because I stole some seed pods from it last October. (It was in front of a historical landmark – an old school house in a tiny town by Capitol Reef National Park). I’m going to try something NEW (to me). I’ve never grown hollyhocks before, so I’m going to learn how! I understand they spread quickly and can get out of control if not checked, but they are so pretty! I typically get garden advice from the Garden Answer YouTube channel. I really like the couple that owns that channel!

Why am I planning my garden in late November??? Because planning makes perfect!…By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail!…A goal without a plan is just a wish!…yada yada… haha!

I also {plan} to design a custom garden planner/seed organizer/garden journal so I have all the information I need all in one place.

I think this will be a fun page to include:

Although the seed organizer will probably be bulky, so it might have to be separate from the planner/journal.

There are SO many NEW things I need to learn about gardening! It’s kind of overwhelming, so I take it little by little…season by season. Way back in 2014, I blogged about my “NEW ideas, plans and dreams” for my secret garden (see old post HERE).

I’m telling you…just blogging about something, truly puts it out in the universe and things happen! If you blog about it – it will come!

This is a little peek of the “secret” space. I’ll take better photos next spring!

Let me know if you have any advice for my garden planner! Have a great day and do or learn something NEW!

  1. Ah, we are definitely kindred spirits. I love your hollyhock seed-stealing. Downstairs, under basement lights and on a heat mat, I am growing seeds I found on the beaches of Sanibel Island. I started them mid-October. I’ll have to write a post on them soon.


  2. I had a hollyhock once and it was doing really well, and then a hungry rabbit came along and ate it practically down to the stub! Hopefully no rabbits will get to yours! 🙂

  3. This is exciting and I’m sure you will love every bit of it – including the things that don’t work out. When I was a little girl, I used to make dolls out of hollyhocks, by turning them upside down and using the flower as a ballgown, and the unopened pods as a head.

  4. I love your secret garden and all your plans! The journal looks like a very organized way to plan… and fun.
    I really only plant zinnias and sunflowers from seeds… oh and vegetable seeds.
    Have a wonderful week ahead my friend!

  5. I’m such a novice gardener, I don’t know what advice I could offer. I like the idea of trying new seeds – that hollyhock is pretty. Two years I planted Four O’Clock seeds and they grew to be beautiful, colorful flowers, almost like bushes. And they produced (and shot out) so many seeds that I didn’t have to plant new ones this year. Happy gardening!
