It's difficult for me to remember what I planted where so I got this idea (from somewhere...Martha Stewart?) to make it easier to mark my herbs and veggies. I use most of the herbs in my cooking and this saves time. Here are the results:
Parsley which is coming back! Great for so many things.
Lavender is coming back after a long, snowy winter. Love the scent, I have a jar of it on my counter. The lavender buds, not the scent...although wouldn't that be nice...
Some of my markers for other plants to be! Oregano, lettuce, swiss chard, bay leaf and beets. The sedum is for the rock garden.
