There are few things I love to cook with more than fresh herbs. Recently we’ve changed our cooking and eating due to some family health concerns and food allergies. We’ve always prepared most of our meals at home but now we are making sure that what we cook is as natural and fresh as possible. That means growing our own produce and herbs as well as lots of other changes. With many different herbs planted I needed some Herb Garden Markers to keep them all straight.
Herb Garden Markers
- forks – pick them up at garage sales, flea markets, or the dollar store
- wine corks – the actual cork kind work better than the plastic type
- paint pen – choose a color that is dark enough to show up against the cork
- jute cord
- hot glue and glue gun optional
Use the paint pen to carefully write the names of all your herbs on the corks.
Let the paint dry completely before continuing.
When the paint is dry carefully push the tines of the fork into the cork below the herb name. Repeat with all of the corks. You may want to use a little bit of hot glue to secure the fork into the cork.
Next cut a length of jute cord to tie around each fork. I picked a multi color pack of cord and really like that each marker is a little bit different. Wrap the cord around the fork several times before tying in a small bow. Again, you may want to secure the cord with hot glue.
Your markers are ready to place in your Herb Garden! These Herb Garden Markers are perfect for an indoor herb garden, a window box, or for a traditional garden.
