Garden Log Format?

After a few years of relatively unscheduled gardening, I have started to keep a log.
But it is just a text file that looks like:
------------------------- 21 October 07 - Planted tomatoes.
29 December 07 - Added epsom salts around tomatoes.
2 November 07 - Planted capsicums.
7 December 07 - Fruits appearing on tomato plants.
14 December 07 - First female flowers on zucchini. -------------------------
And so on like that. (The above is just for example, not real info.)
Does anybody have ideas to offer on a better format? Like maybe a database row/field type of thing?
Thanks...

MS Works data base. It is very versatile.
I use it often. It has unique searching options.
Great program.
I could guide you with some suggestions for setting it up.

I do not think you were addressing me. However, I have some info on organic gardening in the Philadelphia area. Jim passed away and his wife moved. Unbelievable that the new owners planted turf grass over the garden. I wonder if they had a clue as to what that area had been used for. Many many years of building the soil to end up with turf grass. It makes me cry. Some where I have more information on their garden like the crops they planted. I will look. When him and his wife were alive they had the most wonderful garden I have ever seen. I met them because I did their tree work. They were unique. I am going to try to get ahold of his wife some how and ask her to write for the website. http://home.ccil.org/~treeman/bradley/index.html

See my garden diary at <http://www.rossde.com/garden/diary/index.html . No, you don't have to create a Web page. You can to this in Word, in a two column table with a separate row for each date and a new file for each month, each two months (as mine is), each calendar quarter, etc.
It does help to note the weather (my left column). Also note observations and not merely what you do.
When you have a follow-on entry, be sure to indicate a prior date for the same issue. That helps to recreate complete information on it.
If this is for your own use and will not be public, you don't have to indicate the botanical names of plants. I only indicate them in my public diary in case there are readers in other areas, where the common name for a plant might be different or where a common name refers to a different plant.

My garden website, http://www.apanda.ca/gardensite/homegrdn.htm , started off as just a garden log like the one you describe. Like a seed, it grew.
