Hi everyone! I did a little decorating in my vegetable garden the other day that I wanted to show!
I also wanted to show how I add flowers to my vegetable garden.
I realized that probably no self respecting urban/suburban homesteader decorates their veggie garden and that I’ll probably be downgraded from my lowly wannabe status to…(well nothing is below wannabe is there) to kicked out nothing for doing so…but what can I say.
I found some cute garden signs in my garage and two more at TJ Maxx and they had to go somewhere…right?
I always see cute signs at Goodwill and I never get them because I just don’t have any space in my house but I’ve got a lot of boring fencing. So why not junk spice it up a bit! I can see that whole back fence covered in cute signs and garden things!
Normally I’d plant something in this rusty planter but it has been in incredibly hot (heat indes in the 100’s) here and I think I’d have to come out and water it two or three times a day.
So for now I filled it with some cute cottagey plates.
Do you plant flowers in your vegetable garden?
Not only will your vegetable garden be more beautiful but quite a few flowers deter pests and invite beneficial insects.
I don’t see any reason why things can’t be functional and pretty at the same time!
I get quite a few questions concerning my use of hay. I use it as a mulch to supress weeds/grass. I prefer to use woodchips since they don’t break down as fast, but I’m all out.

I had a huge woodchip pile from having all my pine trees chopped down. I used those chips for years! I knew nothing else was mixed in with them since they came from my own trees (our town will deliver woodchips for free but it always has garbage mixed in with it). A bale of hay is cheap and goes a long way. Plus it looks farmyish no?
I really want a rasied bed that will be a cutting garden. That’s on my to do list for fall because summer’s list is booked solid!
Hope you enjoyed this peek into my veggie garden.
Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!
