Wine Cork Garden Markers
I like wine and I have a problem throwing away wine corks. I'm not sure why, but I just can't seem to pitch them in the trash can after opening a bottle. In my dining room I have three large vases, one with red wine corks, one with white, and one with champagne corks. My jars have gotten full so now I have a large bag full of them up in my craft room. I keep finding all these cool cork projects on Pinterest and since I have a plethora of corks I decided to try a few of them out. Today, I made some markers for my garden using a few!
Super simple, and they didn't take more than a few minutes. I used wooden skewers that I have been collecting out of my kids' Earth Fare meals for the last few weeks (Kids eat free every Thursday, up to SIX kids meals with a $5 adult purchase. Love.) and the old corks that I have, (free, and free) and wrote the names of everything that I am growing this year and in less than five minutes had some really cute markers for my veggies!
I can almost taste the zucchini bread now...
I love these little onion sprouts, can't wait to use them in a stir fry or salad!
LOVE my garden, and love that I can grow organic veggies so easily. There's something great about heading out into my backyard to pick dinner! I would have chickens if I could, but our HOA frowns on them...
In a couple of months this lettuce will make a great salad for dinner! Yum!
