Summer has fully arrived in Texas! We almost hit a hundred degrees this weekend and we’re about to open up our backyard pool for daily swims. I’m also getting the yard in shape and doing one of my favorite summer activities: planting our herb pots. I love walking out the back door to cut fresh, organic herbs for dinner. And no herb pots are complete without some cute painted twig plant markers!
I only grow herbs that I know we’ll eat regularly and I always plant them in Miracle-Gro potting soil. I not only want to grow delicious, flavorful herbs but I want to grow healthy eating in my home. Tending the herb pots all summer makes my kids even more keen about flavoring their food and trying new things. It also helps them grow a love of nature and the outdoors. And Miracle-Gro gives my not-so-green thumb the boost it needs to grow big, healthy, flourishing plants!
The basil plants are already off to a great start …
… and so are the other herbs I’m growing.
And my herbs are labeled with cute DIY painted twig plant markers.
To make them, simply gather a few twigs and paint the ends in bright colorful colors.
Use a thin Sharpie to write the names of the plants over the paint …
… and stick them into your herb containers or garden.
They add a fun touch and you’ll never get those greens mixed up!
