I absolutely love my garden and spend a lot of time planting, watering and weeding it. Sometimes I’m successful, sometimes I’m not. I’ve found that I am far better at fruit and flower gardening than I am at vegetable gardening, but I moved my vegetables into my Garden Tower 2 this year to make more space for fruit in the yard. I’m working towards my goal of turning my 1/4 acre yard into more of an orchard. It’s too expensive here to move to the 4 acre property that I want ($700k+ with $10k in property taxes, yikes), but I’ve been reading up on creating fruit guilds as a way to make permaculture an option for smaller properties like ours.

This year was the first year that I really made good use of my garden. I started cutting flowers to make arrangements for my table and used some of my extra plants to make planters as teacher gifts at the end of the year. It was eye opening for me to realize that my garden could be so much more than just something pretty to look at when I’m outside. If you love gardening, but don’t put your garden to use then you’re missing out on a golden opportunity.

Here are some fun ways that you can make your garden work for you! I’ve been focusing a lot on edible gardening in the past few years, but everything from edibles to flowers can be used to make cute or helpful gifts for friends and family!

Gifts Made with Herbs from Your Garden

Rosemary Lemon Bath Salts: If you have a prolific herb garden, make some rosemary lemon bath salts.
