I have an herb garden that gets lots of use during the summer time. My Hubby and I love cooking with the fresh harvests, but I was having to do most of the harvesting since I knew what plants were what. Here is the "before" photo.

 I decided things needed to be clearly marked so the Hubby would have an easier time finding what he wanted. I enlisted his help with the scroll saw and he cut out lots of little mushroom shapes for me. After a few hours work I had both sides painted. Here is a WIP pic of the backsides drying.

Ta-da! A garden full of fun colorful mushrooms clearly marking the herbs!

Here is a close up of the flat parsley marker to show the writing.

The herb garden is so much cheerier now and well marked too!

I love it!!  I have two mystery tomato plants in my garden because the stick markers got lost (washed away?) These would stick around! Smiley

Progress not perfection.

Those are adorable!  Way cuter than the ones I made!

Plant markers would not help me.
A few weeks ago I ripped out half a row of carrots while weeding!
I DID wonder about the weeds growing in such a straight line - but thought they were just smart (and sneaky)weeds.

I LOVE this idea! I've been trying to come up with something really cool for markers for my veggie garden and I think I might have to steal this idea. I'll give you credit. Smiley I love that it adds such cute pops of color.

Great job!

Let your passion lead you to take that leap of faith.
