For my 30th birthday, my friend and coworker, Andrea, got me some plant tags. Said plant tags are re-useable and one is supposed to write on them with gel ink pen. As I haven't ever had super great luck with reuseable plant tags in the past, I took pictures of them figuring that at the very least I could keep track of the types of garlic associated with each plant tag picture.
Here are are the before pictures (and yes, the tags were actually white):
And here are the after pictures (yellow and faded, but still legible):
Sadly they do not wipe off as indicated (soap and water). Rubbing alcohol made no difference. This is why I used them for the garlic - I figure I will likely have these garlic varieties growing every fall so it's not a problem if I have to reuse the same stakes. I wonder if the tags would do better in the shade...
