Add An Outdoor Garden Bench To Your Vegetable Garden

It is hard to beat a good day's work out in the vegetable garden. There is something special about getting dirt on your hands and a little sweat on the brow pulling weeds, harvesting fresh vegetables, or tying up tomato plants. Unfortunately, many gardeners rarely get the chance to actually stand back and visually enjoy all the hard work and effort they put in to making their gardens productive. I believe one of the many reasons why this occurs (other than a lack of time) is most vegetable gardeners do not create an inviting area to just sit back, relax for a while, and take in everything they have accomplished. A great way to provide this is to put a nice, comfortable garden bench near the vegetable garden.

Western Red Cedar Garden Bench – A great garden bench that is made completely from Western Red Cedar, so you know it will last for years. You can either stain this bench or let it weather, turning a beautiful shade of gray – adding an antique look to your landscape.

Think about it. You go out to the garden, you work your butt off nurturing your vegetable plants, then when the day’s tasks are complete, you find a shady spot, and kick back in a stylish, comfortable garden bench with a cold glass of ice tea.

What better way to admire what you have created?

You can watch the bees bounce from bloom to bloom, enjoy the cool breeze as it blows upon your face, and become entranced as the beautiful swallowtails flutter carelessly across your garden. You could just doze off for a bit and take a little garden nap.

  1. I think a bench is a good idea. The way my garden is situated this year my porch swing faces it, so I can get a really good look while swinging. Watching the garden is almost as much fun as playing in it!!

  2. Garden Swings are great addition to home gardens, specially if you have lots of kids;:~

  3. I agreed with Jackie that bench is a good idea.

    I would also suggest to get a glider since there’re in iron material, and expect to last long under rain & snow.

  4. I just start seedling in potting soil then always add a bag of miracle grow to all my planting when i transplant always works wonders..

  5. Tailgater, here is what seems to work for me..I mix a ts of epsom salt in a quart of water, which I put in a handheld spray bottle I get from family dollar for $1.50, this I spray on the blossoms. an old timer told me this (heck I'm an old timer) and so far it has worked. this keeps the blossoms from dropping, and gives the plant a boost. Like you I also use "manure" tea but I have also used compost tea. I like to take mature tea and pour 2 cupfulls per Plant down by the roots, I do this about every 2 weeks. Compost tea should do the same.


  6. I've done the same thing as Errol.  Epsom salts give a boost of magnesium and read you should do it when the peppers and tomatoes start to flower. Since I'm mostly containers I've also put a bit of Epsom salts around the edges of the pots and that seems to help too.

  7. Seaweed tea is awesome, also Superthrive and ThriveAlive…make sure it's the green label because the red label is not organic.

  8. Papaw, wish I could get some seaweed tea, but I live to far inland I guess, so I use compose for my compost tea and horse/cow manure for my manure tea but I have heard wonderful things about seaweed tea

    thanks for the info


  9. can i use cow manure tea on everything in the garden…and how often…also how often for epsom salt and how do i mix it…thank you.

  10. Angel, I use manure tea on everything, just be sure to use no more then a 1part tea to 10 parts water, I use a handheld sprayer and a 1 gallon pump sprayer and I use it about every  3 weeks …epsom salt I mix 1 tbs to a quart of water and spray the foilage and the blooms

    you can use epsom salt as much as you want it will not burn foliage

    Good luck

  11. The tomato is consumed in diverse ways, including raw, as an ingredient in many dishes and sauces, and in drinks. While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes.
