Data bases are not for the meek.  For a casual collector/gardener a journal
and file cards would probably suffice.  Some of us just need to make our
lives more complex and put some of those underutilized skills to work.  A
data base is only as good as what is put into it, and you still have to put
everything into it.  Then you have to sort out how you will find it.

There is one on the market that is designed for gardeners.  I don't
remember the name, but they are out of Sonoma County, California.  I
suspect you would still have to have some idea of how they work to use it
effectively, and I really am not sure how good it actually is.
