Garden Sign Sayings for Vegetables

Since home gardeners spend much of their time working and relaxing in their gardening beds, they often personalize their gardening space in several ways. One popular way is by using signs with gardening-themed sayings on them. These quotations range from tributes to a particular crop to vegetable gardening philosophy. Signs for vegetable gardens are commercially available, but a crafty gardener can make her own with planks of wood and a little paint.
