What a great weekend that was-- I accomplished quite a few things on my to do list, and the weather was amazing. I was even able to spend a lot of time outside digging in the dirt. And according to my neighbor, who we're sharing a trash can full of dirt with, our dirt actually has a name: it's called Bee Knees. Fancy, eh? He mixed it up using a special recipe and now we're both going to wait and see just how good this Bees Knees dirt really is.
I have more seeds to start, but for now, several things are in the works. The baby bok choy is in the lead, but the lettuce isn't too far behind. All of this planting has me scrambling for ideas on how to keep things marked and easy to identify -- I'm already super spacey so I need all the help I can get. Some simple markers that will work just fine for the time being were made this weekend, however, making them caused me to take a minute to look around for other cool garden markers out there, and wouldn't you know, I stumbled upon some sweet ones . For instance:
These are my favorite. Birdie Plant Markers from The Modern Gardener.
Very pretty herb markers by Nina Gibson Designs.
By Monkeysalwayslook, an Etsy favorite of mine.
By Art by Jack -- he makes both herb and vegetable garden markers.
For now, this is what I'm using to identify my seedlings. Pretty simple and works just fine as long as I am able to move my seedlings inside if it rains...
