Help me out here, ladies. Do you grow a vegetable garden every year?!
We have never had the space to grow a vegetable garden, but since we’re now living with my parents, my mom has given me permission to “take over” her vegetable garden this year. I am seriously awful at keeping plants alive – so I’m nervous! But I do love the memories of picking big tomatoes off of the vines in the summer…mmmm! I really want this to work!
I planted seeds a few days ago so they could grow into seedlings before I put them into the garden in a few weeks. We’re trying a bunch of different kinds of vegetables – and hoping that maybe ONE plant will survive! I’m putting them outside during the day and taking them in at night, since it’s still been pretty cold at night here in PA.
Since I was so confused about which plant was which, I made the *simplest* project ever! But I thought they turned out so cute – I wanted to share with all of you!
These little markers are now stuck in all of my pots so even if I kill the plants, they looked cute before they died
I’m sure you don’t even need a tutorial, but I’ll share anyways! This is a great project for using up old scraps of paper you have laying around your house.
The skewers were less than $1.00 for 50 of them (you can pick them up at Wal*Mart). I used my scrapbooking adhesive for the lase step, but you could use any kind of adhesive you have laying around!
Then just use your best penmanship to label the flags, and you have some stinkin’ cute labels for your seeds that *may* never see the light of day Actually, yours probably will, but there’s a good possibility that mine won’t!
Here they are in their designated containers:
*Note – these are definitely not permanent! These are just little temporary markers for while they’re in these pots and I can take them in and outside. They would NOT hold up to sustained use and exposure to rain outside.*
Please let me know your thoughts on gardening – help me out a little bit…or just make me feel better and admit if you have the same problems I do!
