Plant Markers

I've been trying to figure out how to clearly mark all of the plants in the garden, so that the counselors and campers can see them above the edge of the raised beds, but so we weren't spending a fortune.  This is what I came up with...

You can sort of tell if you take your magnifying glass and check out the bottom corners of this photo, that I glued the popsicle sticks to small dowels, so that they will stand up and out of the plants a bit more.  And best of all, they were cheap-o! 

I’ll get some more pictures of the garden for you this week, once I’ve put these out so you can see how big things are getting.

How’s your garden comin’?

  1. I tried using popsicle sticks...then the puppy grabbed them all and chewed them up. I have resorted to writing on the garden bed itself with sharpie. Not a good system but until the puppy grows up, I cant even use plant stakes (I had to cage everything this year!)
