Our Veggie Garden!

I’ve always loved the idea of having a veggie garden.
Tasty, healthy, vegetables
right in my front yard.
Yes please!

The only problem is
I do not have a green thumb in my body.
I’ve killed every plant and flower I have ever received.
My husband’s grandma
who is an excellent gardener
says it’s because I give them too much love and attention.
I think she’s just trying to be nice.

Anyways, when we moved a few months ago
it just so happened (actually it was totally intentional)
that we moved right next door
to our great friends.
And it just so happens that our friends are great gardeners!

After h.o.u.r.s. of hard work
tearing out a ton of old bird of paradise plants
and 8 trash bags full of roots

we finally planted a huge veggie garden in our front yard!

Isn't is pretty?

After our pretty vegetables were in the ground
we decided they needed some labels.

We had a ton of these flat rocks in our front yard so I
decided to paint them like I did these rocks
and use them as our labels.

They ended up being really easy and I love how they turned out.

I love it when a project turns out how I wanted it to.



Do you guys have vegetable gardens?
Any gardening tips or secrets you want to share?

I totally have a brown thumb too! Your garden is so cute though. My husband and I have been talking about planting a fruit and veggie garden in our backyard and now you've totally inspired me! Thanks!! Keep posting pictures of how it turns out and tips for making it grow.

I love, Love, LOVE garden stones! They came out adorable! Sadly we have no garden this year with our move smack dab in the middle of the summer. Even worse our new house has a teeny tiny backyard. ::sad face:: BUT we will have an AWESOME farmer's market down the street!

I love the painted rocks! Reminds me of when I used to paint tons of rocks when I was little. I wish I had a backyard to plant a big garden, guess I'll have to stick to my container garden. No pumpkin or watermelon for me.

Stopping by from Julie's blog.....love the adorable garden stones! I wonder if something like that would work in our garden? We plant in straw bales and things are pretty compact. The stones would get lost :) if you are interested in learning about this great way of gardening check out the tab for Strawbale gardening on my blog header. I'm NOT a garderner, but have learned a lot and actually GROW stuff now vs. Killing things really slowly :)

Blessings to your family from BearCountry!

These are so cute! What type of paint do you need to use so it doesn't wash off outside?

These are so clever! My husband usually steps on the piddly little sticks I use so I'm definitely going to be doing this! Thanks!

I'm curious too about the kind of paint you used? Two years later, have they held up?

I found this blog worthy to read and I guess you have done an excellent job; I am fond of planting green veggies too in my garden.
