I'm into the barn stuff now........Please Read!

When we had the old-rose nursery I had about 1 1/2 acres in a display garden ...mostly native shrubs, old roses and perennials.. But at the same time I was trying to run the gift shop and tea room in the barn and keep up about 4000 sq. ft. of greenhouses plus give lectures and workshops.



Invariably someone would tell me that if I were going to have a garden open to the public I should make a better effort to keep the weeds under control... At this point I would grit my teeth and put on my plastic smile and say.."You're absolutely right and thank you for bringing it to my attention."



In desperation I had these signs made on super tough vinyl with laser printing so they are completely weather proof...(5 1/4" x 8 1/2") It solved the problem but then there were the kind souls who wanted to know which weeds I used for migraines.



I know someone probably might want to buy just one of these signs but I also know they have at least one friend who needs one and the other can be a door prize at their garden club.. So I am selling them on Etsy in sets of three for $5.00 . And even if you don't want to buy one I hope I gave you a chuckle!!!!

I don't have a garden, but if I had one, I would surely get one of your signs! I love your sense of humor :-)

WHat a hoot! I laughed out loud when I read about the woman who asked about which week cured migraines!

Funny. I have lots of gardens too out here in the midst of corn and bean fields that could sometimes use quite a bit of weeding but I have learned over the years to recognize weeds, er, I mean wildflowers, by name and I actually do know the medicinal use of quite a few of them because I collect old herbal books when I can find them. So, when anyone asks...I can name that weed!

Some of the signs I pained for my garden say "Wit's End" where a path ends or "Moot Point" where it seems appropriate.

BTW, I changed the bird block as you suggested and put a revised pic in Janet's album today. Thanks.
