I start many of my plants from seed but never seem to remember what I planted where....and those white plastic garden markers a bit pricey for my taste. So I searched around the house for something I could use.
Hmmm....that big Costco sized box of white plastic forks--perfect!
I've found pencil has more staying power than a sharpie on these things, and I only use them for those plants that don't have a permanent place in my garden.
For those plant that are more permanent I have another solution....but that's another post!
