I have made the mistake before of NOT marking my garden… and I forget what I planted in different sections of the garden. It can be rather frustrating and a bit of a guessing game till the plants get larger. We have used lots of different markers over the years but this is one of my favorite ways. Since you use the seed packet as the marker, you can go back and check things on the packet like growing time, harvest information or even save it so you know to look for that variety again next year if it is one your really like. The key is to make it water proof so it lasts till the end of the growing season.
These are so easy to make and turned out really cute. All you need is the empty seed packet, some wooden spoons and packaging tape. I got a bunch of wooden spoons at a yard sale so they cost me about five cents each, but you can normally find a 4 pack at the dollar store. Put the wooden spoon inside the empty seed packet, use packaging tape to cover the whole packet to make it waterproof and secure it to the spoon too. Simple as that you are done, now just put the handle into the ground and mark where you planted those seeds.
