Garden signs

You might have spotted these little sign in my garden post. 

They were really simple to make, but makes a big difference in the patch. And it will be nice to know what is actually growing where, because previous years we have completely forgotten.

I found some left over wood and sawed it into little pieces. I would have loved to use older wood that had turned gray already, but I did not find any. I think these ones will turn grey in the end so they will have to do.

Originally I planned to add a stick to them, but when I found these really huge nails, I decided to be lazy and just use them. It worked out great.

Then came the tricky part of having to write on them. I first tried with a small stick, but had to give up and go get a proper brush. 

All finished.

The other day I spotted some radish, carrots and rocket salad, so I think things are growing according to plan.

Again, very simple to make, but they make the vegetable patch look so much nicer.

(I will be linking this to A beachcottage tomorrow)

  2. Wow! You must have quite the garden! I don't have much of a green thumb, unfortunately. Great blog!

  3. Your signs are very clever! It does make it nice to know what you are gowing when you want to have a nice salad or some veggies! I'm not to good at growing things, not consistant with the watering part!
