As I started potting up some seeds tonight, I realized I didn't have anything to tag them with. I'm starting some Teddy Bear Sunflowers, Genovese Basil, Cilantro, and a few other herbs, which I'd like to sell at the farmers market eventually, so I looked high and low for my popsicle sticks but couldn't find them anywhere.
What I did find were some clothes pins. I'm not using them right now, since presently, it's bloody awful weather to hang clothes out on the line, so I improvised and used them as labels instead!
Many people have likely already came up with this idea, but if not, and you're in a pinch, pardon the pun, they work just great! I've read that many people use old window blinds, which are cut up and used as labels, too. That's another good idea which I saw on Twitter during #gardenchat.
Have a good weekend, and Happy Gardening!
