Black thumb plant stakes

A quick project squeezed in between other tasks today. My mom sent me a picture of something similar, so I made her this set of “black thumb” plant stakes. This is extra ironic because she’s an amazing gardener, but hey - if that’s what she wants!

These are so great! I’ve seen similar sentiments stamped onto spoons, but I love these! I even have a bunch pinned :stuck_out_tongue: Can I please ask what you used to make them?

3mm birch plywood, laser cut, then sealed.

I think “did I plant that” is my favorite. :smile:

Which laser cutter do you have? I want one sooooo badly.

At home I have a full spectrum hobby laser (gen 2) that I found broken on Craigslist and fixed. Most incredible Craigslist score ever. At work I have a Muse and a full spectrum pro series which I looooove.

Best ever! I always plant stuff and forget what it is.

I love these, “No idea” would be me. I used to have an allotment and would plant without labels because “I would remember what I planted where”
Nope

These are great. We have a wheelbarrow full of nursery pots that held now-deceased plants.

One more tag: “NOID”, orchid growers’ shorthand for No Identification, or “It wasn’t labeled, but I couldn’t resist it”.
