On my to-do list was to start a crop of indoor herb seeds...
I'm not a big gardener but a few herbs started
from seed puts me in the Spring-time mood.
In my yard were hundreds of
broken branches from the very long winter.
After reading the current
Martha Stewart Living Magazine,
I finally had a good use for these sticks...
I started out by breaking off a handful of sticks,
all about the same length...
I gathered the tools needed for this project...
A pruner and a potato peeler...
Note: Your may need a new potato peeler after this!
Next I got to work cutting... I trimmed the
ends of each stick and used the potato peeler
to shave off several slices of the bark.
Using permanent marker,
I wrote the names of the plant on each stick.
A spritz of spray Poly will keep the letters
from fading in the sun.
Stick the stakes in the soil and you're ready to grow!
Ready for some Spring-time herb planting!
Perfect for new seeds or to just organize your garden...
