Tip: Cell phones in the garden

When my plants are in bloom I take a picture of them with my cell phone so I have a record of what plants are blooming in the spring, summer and fall and I date them so I have a record for the next year. For too many times, I'd buy the same plant not realizing I already had it in my garden.
