Strong, sturdy, cedar, vegetable markers for the garden

I was at the Petawawa Showcase on Sunday. There was a fella there, Tim Schwan representing his company, Schwan Cedar out of Pembroke. Tim had these fabulous vegetable markers for the garden. They are sturdy and large enough so that when plants start to grow the markers won’t be hidden or topple over and large enough to print the name of the vegetable on them for the beginner gardener who may not recognize what plant is emerging from the earth.

Schwan Cedar also sells cedar shingles for roofs and siding. Cedar shingles look wonderful on the sides of garden sheds, melding in with nature very nicely. Schwan Cedar shingles are on the roof of the rest shelter down on the riverbank. The shingles age beautifully to a soft grey.
