And the wind chill makes it even worst.
This time of year and this kind of weather makes me long for warm summer days and my garden.
Each year I try to mark my vegetable seed rows with a plant marker so I know where the row is and what's in it.
Here is an inexpensive plant stake that's easy to make.
What you'll need:
- A few paint stir sticks from your local home improvement store. (These are usually free).
- The empty seed packet
- A Ziploc baggie
- Scotch tape or a thumb tack
Tape the empty seed packet onto paint stick
Place the Ziploc baggie over the seed packet.
Close the baggie as much as possible. Use tape to secure the baggie to the paint stick.
The baggie can be folded on the side and taped in place to give it a more streamlined look.
Or, lay the seed packet onto the paint stick. Cover with a baggie, then push a thumb tack into baggie and seed packet to secure both to the paint stick.
My friend Heidi suggested laminating the seed packs and fastening them onto the paint stick. That's a great idea too!
I can't show you how cute this looks in the garden, because it's January and way too cold out, brrrrr
Hoping your gardening is wonderful this year,
