Funny you should mention this as I've added thoughts and feelings this year to my notebooks. Just whatever is on my mind...
I don't do anything for veg except write the date of sowing on the labels but for many years I've been actively charting my garden progress as the design aspect is my greatest passion.
I've kept notebooks for sketches, diagrams and planting schemes lovingly coloured in and also a large folder of photographs over the years that averages out to about twice a month. I photograph everything including the gaps and ugly bits as I then use that data in the winter months to remember size and behaviour of some plants when re-designing my beds. Its also good for before and after pics where you can appreciate all that blood sweat and tears.
