A Spicy Perspective on Gardening

This week we have had incredible warm spring weather here in Western North Carolina.  I so needed a dose of Vitamin D!

Warm weather makes me want to plant and play in the garden, but I know that if I plant any of my seedlings now, mother nature will most likely unleash one more cold snap. 

I settled instead to start more seeds! I am running out of room in my house for all my seed trays. When starting seeds it is very important to mark your seedling as you plant them, or you may forget what on earth you planted.

It makes for a surprise garden for sure!

As I look over my trays I see black trays and dark soil, boring. Plain old plant tags look boring as well.

As I like to be crafty, I decide to create my own DIY garden marker tags. I have a daughter who is my partner in crime when it comes to all things crafty. We put our heads together and decided on a couple of ideas for seedling marker tags.

Bonus – I had most of the items needed on hand, but any excuse to hit the craft store makes me very happy!

We decided to make stamped popsicle makers and washi tape tags. They are both super-duper easy to craft too. These garden marker tags make for an fun and easy family craft.

  1. I love the idea of using popsicle sticks for markers, but what do you do to keep the ink from bleeding when you water them? This was my big problem last year, as they became quite unreadable!

  2. I actually made washi tale markers too 6 weeks ago when I started my seedlings! I wrote in ink in hopes that it will last in the garden too. Any excuse to use all my fun tapes, red designs for tomatoes, green designs for herbs…
