Welcome to OPEN SESSION:  The Moleskinerie Open Thread Discussion.

Moleskinerie invites you, our visitors to share your thoughts on a special topic.


Spring has sprung and so has the pages of many garden journals. Recording the progress of growing things is a tradition kept by farmers and gardeners for ages. Do you keep one?

    They say there are no stupid questions but I don’t believe it…What is a Victory Garden?

  2. Armand says:

    Hi Sophie,

    “Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences in United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany[1] during World War I and World War II to reduce the pressure on the public food supply brought on by the war effort….”

    Some of us are never going to understand some of these things, like collecting string, but I remember they had rations of some sort, nobody had sugar, etc.

    i remember when i worked in a bookstore in college, there was this illustrated (with watercolors) garden journal created by a victorian lady (?) that was reproduced in color and published. it was gorgeous, and i always wished i could garden and paint like that. the text was like some of thoreau’s observational journal writings. i can’t for the life of me remember the name of the author.

    I started using a ‘large’ cahier with squared paper in spring of 2008 (south hemisphere) to keep track of what/where I planted and when seeds came up etc. I stick the seed packets in it and make little drawings of plant layouts.

    The Country Diary of a Victorian Lady? That was a popular book awhile back. I keep a garden journal — it’s a combination of notes, sketches, seed packets, pressed leaves & flowers, photographs, smudges of dirt. I really enjoy it, especially in the dead of winter when I take it out and remember summer…
