Painted Plant Marker Tutorial
Gardening is a great, useful way to perk up your outdoor areas. I love my balcony container garden, I always have fresh herbs at hand. I get to cultivate my favorite veggies, and it adds comfort and beauty to my view.
With the amount of plants I grow in my small space, sometimes I can't remember which plants are which variety. I don't like to keep the tags that come with seedlings (what, they don't match!) and I start about half my plants from seeds as well. This technique is great for an at-a-glance of what is what, is inexpensive, easy, and can be completely customized.
At the top of each stick, illustrate the vegetable, fruit, or herb you are growing. This is definitely optional. You can also use a stamp and paint, or use the same design on each stick. Omit it if you'd like.
I like to have the veggie at the top so I know kind of what I'm expecting. It's also just cute!
