Veggie Row Markers

This summer my kind brother, James dug out, planted and grew a vegetable garden in our backyard. It’s a pretty big space so this is only a start… a greenhouse and another plot of growing space is on the way.

He did oodles of hard work, and I pitched in by a) eating the food, and b) making some simple row markers.

Next year we’ll need more markers for potatoes, broccoli, rhubarb and many more. There is still so much to learn about growing, harvesting and preserving, but James has figured out a ton and I hope to follow in his farmer footsteps soon.
