"Recycled Garden Markers", garden tip

   Here is my easy and cheap way to mark your plants in the garden. I know there is many ways to do this but I like this one! I just collect plastic knifes and spoons that are not used at work (and sometimes used), using a sharpie I write the names of the plants on them and put them in the ground (No Rot, No Rust). Think about it, how many time's have you or someone else opened one of those plastic cutlery sets only to use the fork and most of the time throwing the spoon and fork away. Well, here is a great way to recycle!

  1. Awesome! I do this too. Mostly, to mark where I want to put bulbs in the fall. Once other plants grow, I don't remember where the gaps were.

  2. Thanks, I was just thinking how I needed to mark my roses..! What a great tip...

  3. Nice! I'm still using an old set of vinyl window blinds I cut up. love your site!!

    1. Thats a great idea to use. I will have to remember that one!
