Dear Kathy,

I faced this problem for the first time this year in trying to figure out
how to number my seedlings.  To be honest, I don't have a good "formula"
yet myself.  Your situation is a little different in that you are trying to
catalogue collected varieties instead of home grown seedlings.

I like the ID system that you mentioned above.  The only possible drawback
that I can foresee is if you have two places with the same initials like
Susitna Flats & San Francisco, for example.  Otherwise it should work great.
