Here’s a fun and simple project for your summer garden. Label your vegetables so you can identify which plant is which. It also is a special touch for guests when they come over for a visit. This way they can read the name of the plants they can’t recognize. These even work if you have a container garden on your porch or kitchen herb garden. I think these labels add a cozy touch to your veggie patch.
We made these labels for my son’s school garden, which he has been tending to all summer long. I love that we put these here because many students don’t know what their favorite fruit and veggies look like in plant form.
I used the waterproof labels for this project so the rain won’t smear the ink. The waterproof labels really do work. I even placed the labels in running water to show you how durable they are. There is no smearing at all. In fact, I even ran them in the dishwasher without any problem.
