A Chalkboard in the Garden – Swiss Chard

I took this photo back in October when Swiss Chard was one of the few producers left in the food garden. Davin drew the illustration while I cut back a Swiss chard plant for demonstration photos (and eating, of course!). Our spontaneous outdoor chalkboard project ended up being a big hit on the roof last year. All it took was an empty frame that we had lying around, chalkboard paint, and a cheap piece of Masonite. Make one for your garden!

  1. I absolutely love this chalkboard – and the frame is about the coolest one I’ve ever seen!

    I’m totally making one this year.
