My six year old and I have been creating her first garden beds on our small farm - it has been super fun to see how excited she is to see things growing. She loves to show around her grandpa when he visits...and we decided to make us some garden bed signs using rocks.



I think they turned out fantastic.

For more details on what we did, here are our instructions:

Our other garden beds use a more scientific system - waterproof labels are super (more about those when I get some pictures)

I love the enthusiasm of our kids for all things we are doing....
