Garden Labels from Wooden Spoons

We thought this was a cute idea: reusing old wooden spoons to label the rows in your garden. It's directed toward children, but we think it could be fun for adults, too.

This idea is brought to us by Little Green Fingers, a site dedicated to getting little ones involved and interested in gardening.

Simply write each of your garden's contents on the head of a wooden spoon. Stick the handle side in the soil and - voila! - you have quaint labels made of spoons that might not otherwise see much use (especially if you have an overabundance of wooden spoons at home).
