Big bamboo skewers for marking plants


Y'all, I found the 2-3 foot bamboo skewers today at the dollar store. They work great as marking stakes for newly planted bushes, trees, perennials anything that you've planted. It really helps to keep wild lawnmower drivers away from them. Tie something brightly colored to the top and you can even make name tags and put them on them if you want to. I think there is either 8 or 10 in each pack.

I can't, no way to take pics right now. They are just giant sized meat skewers like you use for shiskabobs (I know that isn't spelled right). You know the ones you can get like 24 in a pack that are like 10-12 inches long at the dollar store, walmart or just about anywhere, they are just like them only thicker and longer. Both kinds are made of bamboo.

I like the little skewers for poking in the dirt to put new starts and for holding plants up.
