Li’l Bro and I are very excited to have finally begun our little veggie garden.

So I grabbed my laminator and some business card sized heat seal pouches.

[If you don’t have a laminator, there are inexpensive, self-sealing lamination pouches out there too.]

I printed out all the veggie names in a simple font onto colored paper, then cut them down to business card size-ish. Then I laminated them.

Of course, duct tape would have gotten the job done, but decorative masking tape is so much cuter, non?

The short skewers went in the short pots, and the long in the taller ones. What an improvement, huzzah!
