DIY Markers For Growing Vegetables

The sun is shining and it’s vegetable growing season. Today I have a simple but effective tutorial for making DIY Vegetable Markers. My Dad is a huge gardener and loves growing vegetables. I have always admired his ability to grow veg and although I haven’t grown as much in the last few years as I would have liked to, we have successfully grown tomatoes and herbs.

I am super excited to try growing vegetables again this Season in the garden and in our plant post and this should help us live more frugally and be more self sufficient.

So today I am sharing this basic tutorial here on The Inspiration Edit, how to make vegetable Garden Markers. It’s simple and easy and can be done with the kids

Use your colourful Sharpies to draw the matching picture next to the name of the vegetable, fruit, or herb.

  1. These are so cute! My daughter is really keen to start her own veggie patch so I’ll definitely be recreating this with her. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Great idea, when we revamp our veggie patch we will get the kids to work on these! Love the pictures

  3. I have just started to become green fingered with my daughter. Getting outside and bonding growing something to gether, will truly bring us closer and such a nifty creative idea.
