I got a pm about labelling plants.
The person had some excellent ideas.
And it reminded me, to look, I never did post how I label my plants.
So, here is how I do it:
This was in May:
How did it hold up? Here is the end of July, sorry no more recent photos, but they look the same.
I take bits of paper, duct tape and my ink pen when I go to the garden to harvest for seed saving.
Does it always work? Well, the names on cages did always work.
The tape on tomatoes occassionally fell off. But, normally I could leave enough stem to attach it well. Then I would just tape the id on the bowl as I fermented them, and then on the strainer as they dried.
I did mess up a few times and have unknown, but from my garden listed on several packets! Oops! But, it won't be hard to identify them once they fruit again! I list the choices on the envelope that I saved seeds in.
The moral is: Don't trust your memory, you will forget. So, label it at all stages, and at all times!
