It has been gorgeous outside these last few days. As I prepare to plant my leeks, peas, kale, and chard this weekend, I thought it was an excellent time to share some of the thrifty gardening projects I have been reading the last few months. I have been reading a LOT, so look for more gardening posts in the upcoming months. Today’s post features some ideas for creative garden stakes.
Turn Vinyl Blinds into Plant Markers!
Do you have a set of old blinds hanging around? Don’t throw them away! Crafting a Green World shared this great idea: cut them up and they make fantastic, durable garden markers. Easy as pie!
Chalk it up!
Design*Sponge featured a great project on how to make chalk garden stakes – they might not be practical for your outdoor garden (hi rain!), but they are great for indoor container gardens and a great project for kids.
Fancy Garden Markers
If you are looking for a gift for a gardening friend, these ceramic markers are very sweet and would work well for container gardens or potted herbs.
