Garden art ranges from plant photography to natural crafts to culinary arts. The garden can be enjoyed not only as it grows, but also in harvest season. Here’s some garden ideas to help you create garden art from your harvest.
Garden photography is a wonderful hobby. I’ve loved learning to photograph flowers and gardens. Garden photography encourages you to get outside and really look at the natural world. There is something incredibly calming about being out in the garden at dawn to photograph plants in the morning dew.
Garden pictures are also lovely to keep indoors during the winter to remind us of the growing season. I like to display my favourite garden photos on my kitchen photo string so that I can keep inspired! If you’d like some garden photos for your home, you can download mine here for free.
Garden crafts provide a relaxing way to enjoy the garden harvest. For instance, I love collecting moss from my shade garden to use in centerpieces and hanging kokedama string gardens. Now I can enjoy relaxing garden vibes indoors.
During the growing season, I love using flowers and other bits and pieces from the garden in crafts. Flower crowns are one of my favourites!
Holiday crafts can be a wonderful way to celebrate the garden, especially in seasons where a thriving outdoor garden may not be front of mind in your area. You can use garden bits and pieces in this Thanksgiving centerpiece, these natural Christmas decorations, flower-themed parties, or even for DIY Valentine’s gifts.
The holiday season is a wonderful time for homemade crafts. I love using evergreen foliage from the garden in wreaths, twigs for ornaments, and even acorn caps. These garden treasures work well with other natural materials such as natural wool felt and garden twine.

The garden harvest is a time of celebration! My all-time favourite garden recipe is heirloom tomatoes on toast. It’s simple but incredible! In the fall I also love roasting the seeds from homegrown organic pumpkins. The go very well in cinnamon cranberry granola.
During the off-season while fresh produce is scarce, I love baking with high-quality ingredients from local and specialty producers. These gluten-free chocolate chip honey walnut muffins are splendid with local eggs, and these honey walnut cookies are so much better with real black walnuts from the recent harvest. Even high-quality local flours can make a huge difference. This super-simple traditional shortbread really highlights the difference of using high quality flour in your holiday baking. If baking isn’t your thing, making your own kombucha is a great introduction to how fermentation works (hello sauerkraut!).
