I don’t use garden markers for everything, but I always need a way to keep the new varieties of tomatoes and peppers I’m growing in my garden straight so I can keep notes of the variety I liked the best. When I spotted these ones here I thought….. it couldn’t be easier!
So if you need a really simple way to mark a few things in your garden, certain variety names your trying to keep track of this works great!
Small rocks and a permanent marker – yep, I have those on hand. So I went to work and quickly made some markers for my garden this year to help me keep track of which tomato plant is which. I did the same with my row of peppers, because I’m always trying different varieties.
When my daughter jumped in and started to help me, she made markers for all the herbs she wanted to learn the names of that I have planted in the garden… Wow I love that learning and spelling that’s taking place 😉
….and what an excellent way for her to learn the names of these herbs! Seeing the rock with its bold name right next to the herb plant every time we go out to weed or pick things, she’ll have them recognized before summer is over.
Now at the end of the year how easy to pick them all up and toss in a basket. Rinse off the dirt and they are ready for storage and next year’s garden!
