Mason Jar Garden Markers

I honestly haven’t really been that into using garden markers for the last few years. My reasoning has always been that our garden just isn’t that big and we can always remember what we planted. Once the plants actually come up, there really isn’t any need for garden markers because you can just look right at the plants and know what they are, at least once you’re familiar with how all of the usual plants you like to grow look as they’re growing. So I just never wasted my time with garden markers.
Well, of course this year we’ve planted a bunch of really close rows in one section of the garden and a few of the things were really slow to come up… only we weren’t sure what we’d planted in those rows in the first place. Oops! That was a bit of an issue because we were trying to figure out if we should wait a little longer or replant, and of course, we didn’t know what was where, so we couldn’t really do much about anything! Guess it’s time to get those garden markers working for us!
For these mason jar garden markers, all you do is grab a paint stick, a clean mason jar (or you can use one leftover from pasta sauce), and your packet of seeds.

Using a sharp knife or a pair of scissors, cut a slit in the bottom of the seed packet (once it’s empty) and slip it over the paint stick.
Stick the paint stick in the ground and place the mason jar over the top, protecting your seed packet from rain and making it look really pretty cute and fun actually!
