I’m not a gardener. Oh, how I wish I were. I have one sad little houseplant barely hanging on to life. But, I appreciate home grown fruits and vegetables immensely and am so thankful for my neighbor’s garden of which they share. My husband grows a sweet little patch of tomato vines and volunteer vegetables (usually squash) in the back yard, and I’m looking forward to tasting the corn from my daughter, Sarah’s, few stalks as well. And I love when pumpkins grow from our compost area where we tossed our pumpkin carvings from the previous year.I’m also quite fond of vintage garden variety illustrations. I have a collection of lovely rare ones you probably won’t find in your Dover clip-art publications. And since the harvest is beginning with many of you, I wanted to share some fun ideas for using this fantastic art.Run paper lunch sacks through your desktop printer (at your own risk!) and make neat little bags to share your home gown produce with neighbors. Or, just make nifty lunch bags!Print notecards for your gardener friends.Print images to iron-on transfer sheets and create awesome garden veggie totes!
There’s so many more uses for these illustrations! I’d love to see what you make!
