Friday Favorite: Plant Tags & Markers

February 8th, 2019

I’ve talked about how much I love these wooden plant tags and garden markers before. I used to buy them way back when I lived in Ohio and never knew that they came from Maine. Imagine my surprise when I made a wholesale order for Seeds & Sundries and was able to drive the 25 minutes and pick them up right at the factory! They use northeast wood to make the plant tags. I use all three sizes, the small ones I break in half and use for my seedlings. When things get planted in the garden they are then relabeled with either a medium or a large one.

After years of using all varieties of item for marking plant tags I came across these Garden Markers. They will stay readable for a year if used on the large plant tags, about 9-12 months on the medium, and for the season on the small. Nothing works as well as these markers do, which is why I sell them over at Seeds & Sundries. If you’ve been looking for compostable plant tags and a marker that stands up the weather, look no more head on over and grab some at Seeds & Sundries. You’ll not only get great products but you’ll be supporting this blog as well!

Do you have any great garden items to recommend?

OPEN for Business

December 8th, 2017

After a few weeks of taking photos, making products, and getting things organized, my shop ‘Seeds & Sundries’ is finally OPEN!!! I spent yesterday working all-day-long getting things photographed, sewn, stamped, organized, and entered. My dining room table is showing the effects.

But, all the hard work has paid off, Seeds & Sundries is OPEN. Head on over and check it out. Your purchases support this blog and keep it ad-free. You’ll find all kind of things there: double gauze scarves, hand stamped note cards, my favorite garden marker & plant tags, lip balm, and so much more.

Check back often, I have lots of ideas for new products I’d love to make and add, but it will take me a while to get those planned and done.

Any products you’d like to see in the shop?
