Growing up I was always surrounded by big lucious green gardens full of vibrant vegetables, fruits and herbs. To this day I have always wanted my grandmother’s and mothers green thumbs. This summer my husband and I planned our little above garden and set out to grow our own vegetables. I’ve been fighting off some bugs and dirt storms but I think our plants are going to make it.
For the past week we have had family in town staying with us. I decided it would be a fun project to decorate our garden with DIY garden spoons and to make some homemade lemonade with fresh basil in it. I’m almost 30 years old and I don’t recall ever making homemade lemonade. I’m usually too lazy and just buy the concentrated juice in the jugs or frozen cans.
For the DIY garden spoons I went to my local Michael’s store to purchase oil based neon color Sharpie paint pens. I also picked up several silver spoons and some white chalk paint. Here are the instructions on making your own DIY garden spoons and the best part about them is that you can re-dip them in the chalk paint if you plant different vegetables the following year.
After finishing with these DIY garden spoons treat yourself to a nice refreshing glass of homemade basil lemonade. It’s not too sweet and is the perfect drink for everyone on a hot day.
