First Garden Marker - you'll need your packet from your seeds, paint stir stick (or stick, skewer, plastic kitchen spoon, etc. - something to be a stake), and glass jar.
Use your empty packet of seeds and place on the stake of your choice. (Open your packet of seeds from the bottom.)
Option 2 - Write on a paint stick (10-$1 at Home Depot) with sharpie or a sharpie paint pen. Seal with acrylic sealer to protect.
Option 3 - Write with sharpie on a plastic spoon (3-$1 at Dollar Tree). You can stop here or ...
Using more colorful sharpies...
On the back side draw a picture of your planted item. A great option for color and if you have kids/grand kids etc.
Option 4 - Wash a rock, let dry, and then use a paint pen or sharpie to write what you are growing. Once this is dry, spray with an acrylic sealer to protect it.
Option 5 - Write with a sharpie on an old kitchen utensil and stake into the ground by your plant.
