I recently planted my early Spring garden and can’t wait for the arrival of all my yummy goodies. I’ve always wanted to make something cute and creative to mark the veggies so I could tell what is what. So I decided on these colorful DIY Garden Rock Markers to keep track of all of the fruits, veggies, and herbs in my garden.
It’s been a few years since I had a backyard garden—5 and 1/2 years actually (since my son was born)! Now that he’s old enough to understand how things grow, he is quite interested in planting a garden with me.

While planting a garden, I used this opportunity to slide in a learning exercise, reminding him about the life cycle of a plant. I also asked questions like, what does a plant need to grow? I also asked him to point to the parts of the plant. Afterward, we watered the garden & painted the rocks together.
DIY Garden Rock Markers Materials:
