Labeling Seedlings

I give up memorizing and bought labeling sticks for my seedlings.

Labeling Sticks

I checked out the plastic labels, but plastic degrades very quickly in the harsh New Mexico sun and get brittle and break.  Wood decomposes gracefully and enriches the soil instead of adding toxins where none are needed.

Not to mention I have 75 labeling sticks instead of a dozen for the same price.  I am using a Sharpie fine point for the names.  I found these in the childrens’ craft section, they are for building little houses… that would be fun too.

The last advantage is I would like to remember varietal names for seed saving.  Labeling sticks will ensure that I remember from which variety I collected seeds.

About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.
