Per season there are about 50 pages reserved for notes. Each page consist of space to note things like 'temperature', 'weather briefs', 'special pleasures', 'lessons learned'. However, each item only has limited room, especially when you would write notes in following years.
The introduction in the book briefly hints at a 'five-year, or even more'. Yes, if you write neatly, in small print, and probably come up with a way of marking your notes with dates.
Photos are nice, couple of full page color photos per season. It does have room for garden sketches as well.
Overall, kind of dissapointing.
Instead, look for the 'one line a day -- a five-year memory book'. The size is much smaller, but in this book each page has room for about 6 lines per day, and each page contains room for 5 days (one for each of the days in the five years)
it only has 34 pages to write in per season, theres 91 days in a season! NO GOOD AS A DIARY! I dont know what I can use it for!!!!
I was so excited about getting it that I started writing in it before I had counted the pages dedicated to each season (somewhere around 40) and therefore cannot return it.
There are four sections to this journal - Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. There are only 34 pages for each season which means the only way this would be a five-year journal would be if you only went into your garden 6.8 days a season, a year. Well I go into my garden practically every day so there is no way I could use this as a five-year journal. I'm using it as a one-year journal which I think is more realistic to the average gardener. That then makes 34 pages a season which if you go into your garden every other day and only record the important moments this could work as a one-year.
There are about two dozen or so nice but unnecessary pictures included throughout the journal. I wish they would have left these out and instead gave me more pages to record my daily entries.
I do really love this journal, though. It has a space for the date, weather temp for am and pm, a space to record color in the garden, visitors in the garden, don't forget, lessons learned, triumphs and lastly notes. It has everything I could hope or wish for in a journal excepting more entry pages.
The 5 year journal size was great, but lost some of the sections I particularly liked of the 10 yr. I am planning on printing my own journal pages from the web and creating my own.
If you have never used a gardening journal before this would probably work well.
