I use old mini blinds (cut into the right length and into a point) labelled with permanent marker. The ink lasts just long enough to harden off and plant out. Then I leave the markers in the sun to get rid of the rest of the ink to use for next year. As far as what plant is what, I draw a map (prior to planting), stick to the plan, and memorize it as soon as possible.
Tips for memorizing: every time you're watering, name the plant. So I had a chant last year with 5 or 6 kinds of peppers and 10 kinds of tomatoes. By the end of the season I could put the produce in the basket and still knew what plant it came from when I got to the kitchen
My chant went as follows: "prudens purple; carbon; black cherry; green giant; siletz; marianna's; carbon; grushovka; lime green salad" see I still know it!
