Plant Markers

One more garden post if you can stand it.

We've made our own plant markers out of gallon ice cream buckets. We fished them out of the recycling bin and using kitchen shears cut off the top handle edge, cut off the bottom and then cut about 1" sections from the wall of the bucket. We got about 20 out of each bucket. Cut one end of each section pointy to make it easier to shove into the dirt. Use a grease pencil (china marker) to write on the plastic. The grease pencil will rub off later if you want to reuse these. Of course the plastic won't decay for some 150 million years so they'll be good for several seasons.
