We finally made some garden markers for our little seedlings. We just used pieces from a pair of broken blinds that I have been saving just for this project. B drew them all, and wrote the names on the back of each so there would be no confusion between green beans and cucumbers ;)

Soon it will be time to dig out the good old rubber snakes from last year to keep our garden safe. We didn’t fence the patch this year, just did a slightly raised bed and it will be interesting to see how that goes.

    These are so cute! Children’s drawings are just so charming, something adults can never duplicate. I would totally buy some of these if you sold em. :)

    Those markers are too cute. But just wondering what you guys used for the drawings and labelling? My kids used felt pen on old popsicle sticks and they completely got washed out by the rain! Luckily i took a picture beforehand so I can refer to it…
