I love the idea with the rod. I too use a Brother labeler. I've been using one for the last 5 years and have never had a label fade or peel. In fact at times the label outlast the plants.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Wow! Great to hear this. Hurray!

Well the tags I showed on page 1 only one held up through a season or more ,,
Now I am trying this ,,
Soda bottle plastic still the material .
I am scratching the name into this plastic , as the plastic material lasts in all weather .
I suppose a little engraver would work for this ..

I will see how this idea takes the time .. (weather ) etc .

Too much time and practice into the first on page 1 ..
apologies to any who tried and failed .

Since I first did this , I have had clear gorilla glue since then , Or if you use the waterproof markers on the soda plastic , let it dry a while , then seal it on with the clear glue it stays nicely ,, pictures still fade over time though , outside that is ,
