Easy DIY Plant Markers

We’ve just enjoyed two weeks of school holidays, where we caught up with friends and family and generally had some ‘down time’. Now we are up and running with term 4!

I’ve mentioned before how challenging it is to grow edible things in my garden. The nasty little green caterpillars I can deal with easily enough, it’s the possums, bandicoots, and wild rabbits that are a bit harder! I’ve been wanting a raised garden bed for a while, and one day I discovered some serious work had begun… here are a couple of progress photos…

DIY Rustic Planter Boxes

There’s a space down the bottom of our garden that I have earmarked for some garden beds. And since there is nothing planted there at the moment (apart from weeds), there is a chance that whatever does go there will have a small chance to grow before the wildlife discovers it!

We even started making some planters to go in the space.

But, I am still waiting for it to be cleared out and made ready…

So recently I pulled out 2 of the planters that have been made and decided to pot them up. What’s the point of them sitting around! And I thought I’d share how they were made 🙂

Who hasn’t got some old fence palings hanging around? And if not, you are sure to see some whenever there is a council clean-up, or a house being demolished… These are in the spot that I want to become a garden.
