I also have pages for seed/plant inventories. Go ahead and drool over my seed expenses for the year.....you know you want to. I'd like to have $41.94 worth of seeds for $5.16 every year!
My third page is similar to the above, only it's for miscellaneous garden expenses (compost, tools, wood for garden beds, etc).
I'll also include plans, on graph paper, for each year's garden. Here is what I've decided to put in my east (#1 fence line) garden this spring (one square = 1 foot, MG = marigolds):
And here are the plans for my east (#2) gardens. The brown strips are where I'll lay the soaker hoses:
Not shown are the sugar snap peas that will cover 12' of the south fence, and cucumbers that will be planted along the fence on the west side of the yard.
I still have the north gardens, and the dog pen/arbor gardens to finish planning. I think I'm going to have to convince Mr. H to move that new fence about 8 feet closer to the house so I can make room for three more 4'x 8' (or longer) beds!
Happy New Year....let's make 2009 the "Year of the Garden"!
