Seed starting plant labels'

Seed starting plant labels'

I've just ordered hotpepper seeds for 2014. 23 different varietiesfrom three different e-bay sellers, the total bill is close to $100. I willstart these seed on MLK weekend

I've still need to order my sweet pepper seeds. I'll startthose about Daytona 500 weekend.

Then I'll look for mytomato seeds to start about St. Pat's week.

SO you can see how I'll need a ton of seed labels for all ofthose plant pots - well over 1000.

I use old vinyl venetian blinds cut into 3 or 4 inch strips.

I'll make a spread sheet list sorted alphabetically andnumbered, then all I write on the vinyl labels is just the plant variety 'number' and not the whole variety name -

# 6 Mucho Nacho

The tag just getsjust the ' 6 'Seed starting plant labels'
