Quick and easy plant marker ideas? Heck yes! Who doesn’t want some neat plant marker ideas? Plant markers can help you keep track of all the flowers and vegetables growing in the garden. They’re indispensable for those times of the year when some plants, such as spring-flowering bulbs, die back and you can’t remember where you planted them.

The rest of my writing lately has been ghostwriting for a variety of companies, website copy, and work on my novel, I Believe You. It’s a mystery novel and I think you will enjoy it! Hoping to publish it by the end of 2015, God willing.
It’s been raining non stop here for the past several days, so no new garden photos or activities to report. My tomatoes look like they grew a foot taller thanks to the rain and I am certain that the weeds did. Ugh. I’m going to have some weeding job once the rain clears, but I am very grateful for the extra rainfall so early in the warm season.
