Last year I had the herbs on the side porch but since I put my sewing machine table on the pergola I needed to relocate them.
I don't have a lot so I put them in this wagon I found in the barn. Now I can roll them to different locations. I've already had to move them once. The intense heat and humidity started making them look a little puny so I moved them to the back yard under some trees.
I decided to go a little step farther and make some plant markers. I have an assortment of silverplated flatware in different patterns. I chose two larger serving spoons. They were flattened with a hammer and then the stamped using metal stencils. I think I need to try a fine point permanent marker and trace the letters so it will show up more.
For the other two, I chose forks. I separated the prongs apart by inserting the other fork handle in and lifting up.
I found these T labels that I already had and snapped the bottom off and wrote in the name of the herb.
Insert the card in the prongs and there you have it, an easy peasy plant marker! Now I could have used the T markers I already had but that wouldn't have had any character!
You do need to drill a hole in the water to keep the water from standing in it.
This was a very quick and easy project.
and I'm very satisifed with the outcome! To see my inspiration, click here to go to my Pinterest. Thanks for stopping by!
