How does your Garden Grow?

This year after attempting to late to sign up for a plot at the Community Garden we decided to try Square Foot Gardening. I'm excited to say we've got the boxes made, almost filled, and we have the seeds (and their locations) planned. I'm especially excited to try some things I've never grown before: Cantaloupe, Jalapenos and Round Zucchini.

Anyhow, as we've planned the locations of the vegetables, fruit, and herbs I realized we would benefit from plant markers. For two reasons: it makes it cute and so we remember where we planted things.

So I've found two really cute and crafty ideas for making them. I started the first idea and
then saw the second one. I'm not sure which I'll end up making in the end, but I will show you the finished product. In the meantime, if you are planning to make your own markers here are the ideas and tutorials from the online craft world:

I love this idea! I'm going to make them and give them to Brock's 99 year old great grandmother who ADORES her garden!
