Watching My Garden Grow: A Gardener’s Organizer was developed in 2011 by avid gardeners Irene Kreutner and Lynda Guckenberger in Kitchner, Ont. Eager to find a journal that would help track the progress of their gardens, Irene and Lynda scoured the market for a gardening journal that suited their needs. They soon discovered that, while there were many journals available, none had pockets for plant tags. They decided the best solution for their problem was to create a book of their own, and a year later Watching My Garden Grow was published.
“We had the most joy the day we went to the printer in Mississauga and saw our book pages come through the printer,” they say.
Irene and Lynda are both retired now, and are so busy being retired that they don’t have time to promote or sell their books. The two gardeners have chosen to donate many of the books to nurseries and charities in their area. The books are then used as door prizes and giveaways to help raise funds for various charitable causes. Irene and Lynda want their books to be used for good, and over the years have donated portions of their profits to the Canadian Cancer Society.
