How do you keep track of your garden?

I've been very casual about the garden and haven't had any kind of long term plans for things like crop rotation, pruning, etc. But I'm wondering if I should be keeping better notes and developing more of a plan.
What method do people use? Just a notebook that you keep with your tools? What kinds of things do you take note of?
I’m hopeless unless I label pots planets with bulbs or do very roughly sketches of where hardy perennials and bulbs are planted...
I could do with a further plan as I do forget what is planted where. Every year I think this and have tried a few things (diary, photos, pictures) but they do fall by the wayside.
I also have a spreadsheet of what plants are in which bed, but after a brief flurry of enthusiasm I haven’t kept it up to date, ditto a list of all the seeds I have/did have at the time.
