Veggie Garden

Here’s something fun – not exactly a recipe, but …….

from Country Woman magazine July/August 2002

Difficulty: Intermediate

Servings: several


1 green foam board 17 7/8″ X 11 7/8″ X 5/16″

wooden fencing 60″ long X 2 1/2″ high (I use less by using on the front and sides only)

U pins from the floral department

wooden skewers

decorative elements such as miniature scarecrow, birds, et.

1 can of baby corn

leaf lettuce or other large leafy greens, washed and dried

assorted prepped veggies

your favorite veggie dip


The base is a slab of green styrofoam covered with leaf lettuce and held in place with U pins. The fencing can be bought at craft stores such as AC Moore or Michael’s. Attach it with U pins also. The veggies speak for themselves LOL – well, the ‘corn stalks’ are green onions sliced and curled in ice water. They are a bit tricky to finish – you slide a wooden skewer up inside the onion and attach a baby corn. Thought this was a good time to share this – the scarecrow and crows are easy to find late Summer and into the Fall.

I keep all the non-edible parts in a shopping bag hung in the basement for the next garden 🙂

Little washtubs or wheelbarrows are fun to add to – good for dips if they are food safe.
