Art in the Garden

My friend, Jana's raised bed.


  1. Any color'll do when there isn't much to look at!

  2. Thanks for posting my photo, Chris! I have to agree with Jim/ArtofGardening...I'll have something fun to look at until I have something fun to eat!!

  3. How very very cute! Did you put some kind of protective coat on the painted surface???

  4. Hey Steph...I've not sealed the artwork yet, as I am still tweaking a bit and have another side of the box to finish painting. Right now, I cover just the sides with plastic to protect against the elements (rain won't really affect it once it's dry, but the sun will fade the colors.) When it's finished, I'll use a satin polyurethane seal (Tree House Studio makes a good one). I'll post full photos, etc. once it's complete on my blog

  5. Square Foot Gardening is the most productive, efficient, and easy way to garden. Not only does it use just 20% of the space a traditional row garden, it saves water, and time spent digging and weeding. For more information on Square Foot Gardening please visit our web site
    Happy Gardening Everyone!
