We had gorgeous weather here in Portland, OR this past weekend, making it the perfect time to get out in the garden and plant our vegetables! Big brother and Daddy worked hard weeding, sowing, digging, planting, and watering all of the plants and seeds. It is going to be so rewarding to watch them grow over time and then be able to harvest our own vegetables. We planted a few different types of tomatoes, sweet peas, yellow squash, zucchini, and carrots. We also have pumpkins that we haven't planted yet as well as sunflowers, zinnia, sweet basil and rosemary in pots in the house.
So while the boys were busy getting dirty, I was painting rocks... rocks to be used as garden signs! I used non-toxic acrylic to paint the rocks to look like each vegetable.
I had a set of alphabet stamps that have been lingering in my junk drawer. I bought them from the Target dollar section at least a year ago and now I finally had a use for them! They were perfect to stamp on the vegetable names.
I still need to make a couple more and then I may coat them with a clear finish, but they already look great in the garden!
