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 for the summer straight. When I spotted these ones here I thought it couldn’t be easier!
Small rocks and a permanent marker – yep, I have those on hand. So I went to work and quickly made some markers for the 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 that we had planted in the garden this summer…….and what an excellent way for her to learn 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!
