CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT YOU PLANTED WHERE? Here's help...
Here is another idea of something you can make that's really inexpensive compared to buying labels in
the store. Even if you buy them in the Dollar Tree, 1.25, you only get 10 labels. By using a yogurt container, plastic milk carton or equivalent and cutting them into long pieces, these can be used as labels, over and over again, which work really good
inside or out.
I love coming up with easy, inexpensive ways for gardening on a budget. These labels were made from plastic containers like yogurt, jugs of all sorts, etc. I apologize that they are not
perfect, but you can make them any shape, size or color.
The photo shows two Sharpies. One is a traditional permanent black and the other is a Sharpie that contains white enamel paint. I found it at
Michaels. You can purchase this in either a regular point or fine point. I prefer the thicker point when writing on the plastic. My pen is actually running out of ink, so it is not real thick.
This is just
an idea. I hope it's a help. Please remember that I also have my garden plan in my notebook. In this way if my labels fade away or blow away, I still have the information to refer to.
