I have had several people asking where I bought the garden signs that I use for my square foot garden. I purchased these from Amazon – and they even come with a special paint pen. The signs are so useful when the plants are just coming up and I’m trying to decide if it is a weed or the plant I want.
There are a lot of signs out there from copper, colorful, and these biodegradable ones. But these white, plastic ones are what I bought and I just love them. They are completely customizable so that I can label everything in my garden appropriately. The problem with the super-cute pre-labeled signs is that in my square foot garden, I have several sections of the same vegetable, so I need several different markers for the same food. With the blank signs, I can have a label in each of my squares.
Last year I tried to go without labeling and it was a mess. I had no idea which sprout was supposted to be there, and which was a vegetable. So this year, I was a bit more proactive and went a little label crazy.
The signs come with a black paint pen, which holds up better than a permanent marker. I have had them out for almost two months and they are still looking great (even after my youngest has helped himself to the signs and attempted to mangle them).
