    Test Garden Marker Ideas?

    I have a terrible memory. I am wondering what you use to mark the objects in your test garden? So I know it's a pop top at 8", quarter at 6", etc.

    a piece of wood 1x2x 36" marker 8" pop top
    another piece wood marker Quarter 6"
    another piece wood marker soda can 14"
    another piece wood marker Don't step on the tomato plants
    place a stick stand up right out of the ground near the object you buried leave about 2' feet from the object
    Have fun with your garden and don't forget to water the plants

    Walmart has plastic tent stakes, the tops are big enough to write whats there. Less than a buck each.

    Use different colored plastic landscape flags and write down what each color stands for.

    White plastic spoon with a sharpie ID on the back. Stick the handles in at an angle so the back of the spoon is visible. Low enough so the mower does not hit.

    Hunt in a local park until you get used to the sounds of different targets. No matter what detector you use even if it can detect targets at 12" it will sometimes send you a mixed signal at 8".

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    I take a small (1-1 1/2 in) round white river rock, mark it with black magic marker and spray it with varnish and just press it in flush with the dirt. Mower misses it, and and can see it easily. varnish keeps magic marker from fading or washing off.

    I had an assortment of brightly colored plastic gold tees from my Father-in-Law. They came in a half-dozen colors.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
