A long shot of my "seedlings"

I took this photo of my plants grown from seed as I have them all laid out on these crates at the moment. The ones on the yellow crate in front aren't from seed but just about everything else is.

I have been catching up on my cataloguing and numbering and I'm up to just about 250 plants from seed now over two years old. I need to find an effective way of labelling them - I'm using stickers on the side as well as plastic labels but both have challenges - the "permanent" marker fades, and the stickers seem to get eaten by the "wildlife". Eventually I will have to devise a suitable system if I want to have each one uniquely identified.

I'm really happy with how they are progressing, and also my babies (under a year) are doing very well. Where will I put them all is the question, but I'm sure I will figure something out when the demand exceeds the space I have now.



  • Hi,

  • I just found your blog and I read where people made labels by writing (use a ballpoint) on heavy-duty aluminum foil: makes an indelible imprint in the foil (and I guess you can always paint in the indentation?) I've never tried it, but I just read about it last night! :)
