Great tip, thanks!

I might buy some of this plant-tie-tape. I'm currently using mini-blind slats with holes punched, and waxed twine to tie them on. But that's slow.

I also use your "numbers, not words" system. For seed sowing at least, and also for collecting when I have enough of one species.collecting.

Do you dry seeds on paper plates or in paper envelopes?

Usually i pick my seeds dry so I put in a paper bag and then clen them and put in homemade seed envelopes, or old seed envelopes.

Note, the paint pen will flake off ifit's left out too long so maybe a ball point ben that would also emboss the plastic tape would do better.

I LOVE that plastic tape! I use it for everything!
