My garden could use a bit more personality.
In the past, my garden has been all business, all-the-time. What do I mean by this? I mean everything I do has been to increase yields, or grow better tasting fruits and vegetables.
Who cares what the garden looks like or how it makes me feel. Flowers are for pollinators, not for making things look nice.
Garden potting benches are for repotting. Never mind how charming they are. Fencing is for keeping the varmints out, not for making pretty scenery.
After all, this is Suburban Hobby FARMER, not CUTE Garden Grower. But NO MORE. I’m turning over a new leaf (pun intended).

I’m starting with garden signs
To add some personality, I’m going to start with adding a sign — Bill’s Garden — to my patch. This is to let everyone know that I am capable of doing something JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT.
It won’t increase yields from my cucumber plants or make my apples taste better. But it will look nice and make me happier.
How do personalized garden signs work?
The sign makers have a “base” design that usually stays the same. But there are some sections of it that can change.
Often, you insert your name or the name of your garden or maybe the year. This makes it customized to your specific garden. It works out nicely.
Here are the signs I’m considering:
Wheelbarrow Vintage Sign
Personalization: [Your Name]’s Garden
Description: Personalized, Vintage, Distressed Look
Personalization: [Your Name]’S GARDEN | Grown with Love | Plant & Grow & Eat & Repeat
Description: Wood Garden Sign
Rustic Metal Sign
Personalization: [Your Name] Garden | Dress Produce | FRUITS * HERBS * VEGGIES | EST. [Year]
Description: Vintage, Distressed Look
Flower Garden Sign
Personalization: [Your Name]’S GARDEN
Description: Metal Garden Sign
Sign and Stake
Personalized: [Your Name]’s Garden
Description: Stake and Go
Personalization: [Your Text Here] Garden

Maybe you didn’t see the design you would like. You can see more examples here.
