Garden Gems

Need a gentle reminder that you've planted tomatoes next to lettuce in your garden? Snag some of these planters from Phipps to make your life easier.



These locally crafted garden markers by Plant Picket [$8.95 each] will help you to remember what you intended to pop up this summer in your garden.

Already planted your crops? Test your recall by sticking planters in what you believe to be proper spots of your garden; see how well you've done when things start blooming.
