Doreen & Barbara:
In the intense sunlight of Colorado *everything* fades out quickly that
I've tried in the past, inc. laundry markers, perm. ink markers, grease
pencils, etc. -- except soft lead pencil, oddly enough, but it's hard to
get that to write on some of the things I've used for plant tags. I'm
hoping this new BotanicaLabel pen will remain legible longer.
I'm a klutz, foot-wise, & always manage to step on popsicle sticks or
short plastic stick-in-the-ground tags that get brittle in the sun &
cold -- I snap both these off all the time. This is going to sound
really tacky, but I'm waiting for one of my renters to move out next
month so I can claim the tattered white-plastic miniblinds in his cabin
to cut up for plant tags! (I mean, he's already given notice so doesn't
it follow that the NEW renter should be the one to benefit from the NEW
blinds that I'll have to buy anyway?!) Meanwhile, I'm using up a bunch
of tags I cut from the flat parts of plastic milk jugs -- these remain
pliable for a long time so are in less danger from my boots but you can
only write on one side as they're "see thru". Price is right, tho.
Marte in the mtns Zone 4/Sunset 1 Colorado Colder again tonight:
full moon, clear, hint of snow in the air, tho.
