Gardening Finds

When you think of Etsy, you don’t always think of gardening…right? However, you’d be surprised at the number of handmade gardening finds available for sale. Planters, tools, and (my absolute favorite) seeds are just a few options.

I’m in the process of planning my vegetable garden for this year, and while I probably (okay, definitely) have all the seeds and supplies I’ll need, I couldn’t help but browse online for more. Here’s a couple of my favorites…
