Old Mini Blinds Make Great Plant Markers

By Horntoad

Old mini blinds make great plant markers. "Permanent" markers tend to fade in the weather, so use a pencil; it will last much longer and can be erased to reuse.

>> You must hammer those letters hard!

True, I keep people awake in the surrounding cubicles. Somehow, "touch typing" never sank in. I have a two-finger hunt-and-peck method that is far from delicate. maybe I should call it hunt-and-whack.

Maybe the plastic in PC keyboard leys is unusally smooth, or fingertip oils are corrosive, but paint pens and sticky lables come right off.

My Sharpie brand permanent marker seems to work better on mini blinds than pencil.

This spring I received 3 types of iris in trade from one person who was SO kind as to put a mini blind marker in the baggie with each separate rhizome. Being as I had the markers, I put them all into one large pot to wait for my eventual planting spot to be ready. When I came back in a couple of months, the pencil had faded off. Now I'll have to wait for bloom to know who's who.
Decisions, decisions.
I tried a couple of usernames and have finally settled on:

crittergarden.

That's it, no more changes. I'm done. I will be crittergarden here, on Cubits, and when I renew my Dave's Garden subscription on Noveber 4, I'll be crittergarden over there, too. DONE!~~~ UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, PART OF THEIR SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED ~~~
