My little garden has brought me so much joy, already. I tried for an herb garden last year, but it just wasn’t in the cards, apparently. Most of my seeds just didn’t start. This year, however, we had more time to plan ahead and prepare. Of course, Pinterest helped.
In my patio garden, I have some basil, oregano, strawberries, tomatoes, thyme, lavender,citronella and a patch of wild flowers. I wanted something clever and cute to mark the plants. Not because I forget which is which, but just to let others know and to add a little more pizazz, I guess.
I grabbed some spoons from a thrift store, pulled out my Mod Podge and got to work. In no time at all, really, these babies were in the ground.
To get rid of the crisp clean white paper, I soaked it in some water and coffee grounds for a day. Then, I simply drew out the labels, tore them out and Mod Podged them to the spoons. I then covered them in a couple more layers of Mod Podge to seal and protect the paper labels. We’ve had several rains since I installed the spoons and they are still holding up strongly.
Do you have anything growing this year?
