The thing about an herb garden, or any edible garden for that matter, it can be extremely challenging identifying whats growing where. Or if you’re like me, you mistake oregano for parsley. So for practical reasons and to provide a decorative element to my Herb Ladder Garden I made these garden “stakes” to identify my plants using scrap pieces of wood and craft paint. Let’s get Crafty!
I used some of my favorite acrylic craft paints, Hand Made Modern Acrylic paints. I picked these up from Target and the colors are so vibrant and modern.
The only challenge is when handwriting the names of things is you have an increased chance of making a mistake….in my case it was a spelling mistake. I’m used to my phone or google underlining the word with a red dashed line. WHERE IS THE DARN RED LINE when you’re actually writing by hand?! Oh well…it happens. Now I’m curious as to how many people actually caught that error LOL.
But hey, we all make mistakes. My mistakes are just painted in acrylic. Thankfully there’s always the other side…of the wood that is.
Now grow and know what your eating. –T.
