Absolutely, positively genius way to mark your seeds, or plants in your garden. Just rinse and use glass jars from spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce or other glass jars.

I tried this once a few years ago It looked great but did not fair well after an overly windy day, picking out the bits of shattered glass was not that fun . Ive stuck with putting my markers on sticks with a clear plastic baggie and a decorative ribbon since then it does the job. but if i were to go back and try again id leave the lids attached to the jars , just puncture a hole through it the same size/shape of your stake to give it some stability.

I have had a lot of luck repurposing old blinds and the insides of soda cans for plant markers. For the former you cut and use a sharpie, the latter you “write” backwards on the printed side of the can.

I don’t think this would withstand our spring storms in these parts but I like the baggie and ribbon idea!! That would probably work better. We get some wild weather sometimes.
