We’re heading into the very best time of the year when it comes to fresh fruits and vegetables. If you’ve got a garden you know how quickly, once things start to ripen, you can end up with lots of extras. These Fresh from the Garden gift tags may be incentive to get out and share your joy!
I have loved sharing my bounty with friends and neighbors over the years. It’s always nice when something I’m not in need of brings a smile to someone else’s face.
July 15th is National “Give Something Away” Day. I created these bright “Fresh from the Garden” and “From our Garden to You” printable tags to celebrate this fun day. Grab a small basket (or large, depending on your bounty), fill it with garden fresh fruits and veggies, print off a cute tag and deliver to one of your favorite people.
This would also be a cheerful tag to use with a fresh loaf of zucchini bread or other garden fresh treat.

I think sharing is one of my favorite things about having a garden (and having chickens, I love sharing fresh eggs). In the past, a few neighbors and I were very intentional with our gardening. We looked at the things we knew we wanted to grow and used a lot of and then sort of split up the planting. Why would everybody in the neighborhood plant zucchini plants when we knew a couple well maintained plants would supply more than enough for us all. Same with tomatoes and cucumbers. As I’m trying my hand more at canning having a couple plants each of my own has been awesome and there is still plenty to share.
I hope you take advantage of National Give Something Away Day this July 15th. Remember while these fresh from the garden and from our garden to you tags are created for you to gift something from your garden this is also an opportunity for other ways to give something away.
