Make Your Mark

This was a big gardening week for Brad and I.  We began planting in our own little garden at home, then had a nearly a full day of gardening in a huge garden a group of us are working on together at our friends' house.  For our home garden, we made our own garden markers, and here's how we (well, Brad) did it.

Begin with cut branches.

Shave bark off one section at the top.

Print names of garden items.

Place in the garden.

 Ta da!

They were so simple and quick to make, not to mention free.  Plus, I really love the natural look they have in the garden.

PS - As I mentioned, our home garden has begun.  We decided to plant zucchini, green beans, lettuce, peas, and snow peas.  We were quite limited in our options since we get very little sunlight.  It turned out well though as those are some of my favourite vegetables.  Oh, and they're mostly organic!


  1. Awesome! Great job on the garden. :)

  2. Did you leave lots of room around the zucchini, cuz it will get huge!
    PS-I love your stakes!
