Easy DIY Slate Vegetable Garden Marker Idea

I love the garden season and I love creating a beautiful garden to work in. I like to have some sort of garden markers to know what I planted where and this year I found small pieces of slate to use for my vegetable garden markers.

I ordered the supplies and when they arrived, I got busy making my vegetable garden markers. I wrote the names of what I was growing on my slate pieces with the sharpie pen and then attached them to the wooden stakes with jute twine.

This is a super simple project that adds a great deal of character and beauty to the garden. These slate garden markers can be used with chalk however I knew that wouldn't hold up in the rain. So, while a sharpie pen is permanent, I know that I will be using these year after year.

It has been a busy garden season so far with setting up this space at our new place, I have built raised garden beds, built a tomato trellis and now have the garden markers. It is a busy season around here.
