The other day I had the opportunity to go to a local garden that is a joint project with a restaurant chef and a winery. There were all sorts of wonderful things growing in the garden but the thing that most caught my attention was the way they had marked the rows and plants.
They recycled empty wine bottles as garden markers by writing on the sides with permanent ink (wine pens) and turning the bottles neck down into the garden rows.
So much for my dorky little seed packets tacked to a flimsy wooden stake.
These bottles are cool, guaranteed not to blow away in the wind or disintegrate from too much exposure to the sprinkler.
I’m so glad people much more clever than me come up with great ideas like this.
And let people like me steal their ideas!
