Popsicle sticks have always reminded me of arts & crafts and glue-covered fingers. But now I look at them and think "plant markers." To make these I bought a bag of wooden sticks (the tongue-depressor size), carefully cut the bottoms into points and painted them with chalkboard paint. Done! Or so I thought... I took it one step further and used rubber stamps & a white ink pad to label the plants I'm growing this season.
**Bundled up, the leftover markers make a great little gift for my fellow city gardeners.
