NUMBERING THE GARDEN BEDS

Hi friends!

Over the years I’ve accumulated 28 raised garden beds.

Or I should say I instructed Mr. Denim to build ‘em.

Two years ago I stenciled numbers on all of them...

to keep track of what I planted in which bed.

I once drew out a garden plan but it got too convoluted and confusing.

This garden ain’t neat and orderly with beds arranged in rows.

It’s pretty much cattywampus.

The stenciled numbers were {yawn} boring looking and I’ve never found any stencils to liven the look up.

This summer the industrial looking numbers are fading pretty badly.

 So…I had an aha moment at Home Depot a few weeks ago…and decided to get these house numbers for something more permanent.

 You know paint and I are good friends....of course I decided to paint them green...

 Here you can see the new larger metal number…and old painted number.

 A little sandpaper to rub off the old number...

and while it’s not perfect right now, the wood will weather more and in a year it’ll look good 😉

I have half of them done so far…just takes time!

Have a great week!
