Dear Clarence, 

Enjoyed your comments.  Will not be throwing tomatoes but will snickering to myself for awhile, time permitting.

I have been using a P-touch Writer with 1" labels adhered to an metal Rose Marker.  We have a show garden and find that we are truly glad not to constantly identify cultivars.  The labels are very obvious as they are bright yellow labels.   There are clear tapes available if you would like something less obtuse.  We have had the labels out in our hot summer sun and in our -40 degrees winters with about 6' of snow is pretty usual and have lost none so far.

<< Anyone with suggestions for making markers with/for/by youth??
I have found that labels FOR youth are unnecessary.  Simply write their names
with a black permanent ink marker on their behinds.  Does this help, Carolyn?

hit with rotten tomatoes.)
