Wine Cork Garden Markers {and our first garden}

This year, we planted our first garden! I call it my salsa garden because I have every intention to ma ke all kinds of yummy fresh garden salsa with these vegetables. We planted tomatoes, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, red onions and cilantro. We still had some extra space, so we also planted cucumbers, lettuce, and parsley. Neither of us have really ever had a garden, so we can't really be sure we will have vegetables by the end of summer. We have just been watering the plants every night and things seem to be growing quite well. 

I decided I wanted to put in some garden markers, so I pulled out my wine corks, skewers, and a permanent marker. 

I simply wrote each vegetable on a wine cork with my marker, and then stabbed a skewer into the bottom of the cork. Within minutes, I had fun garden markers ready to stick into the dirt. 

And now we wait! Hopefully we will have vegetables coming out of ears in no time. 

What do you usually grow in your garden? 
I'm kind of regretting not throwing a few strawberry plants in there. There's always next year, right?

Have a great weekend!


  1. Love your garden markers--so cute! Such a great idea to have a little garden so you can make some salsa!

  2. Your markers are looking very cute. Thank you for sharing your views. I have also tried this trick, but that was unsuccessful. They destroyed after some time. Then I bought some labels by The wooden garden labels are amazing and giving a stunning look to my garden. I will also recommend you to use these markers in your garden.

  3. Thanks for sharing this wonderful information. Here I found variety of garden markers and using of that. I mostly use stone made and metal made markers in my garden design.
