Ed came to the allotment today for the first time in weeks. He was gratifyingly impressed by the changes that have occurred since he saw it last, and did a little hoeing. He kept asking "What's that?" and "What's this?" and "What are those?" which was quite unnecessary because everything is labelled very clearly.
I've been making plant labels out of old milk bottles. They're a sturdy whitish plastic, and you can write on them with a permanent marker to make nice labels. I like them for three reasons. First, they're free. Second, they're recycled. And third, they help me remember what I've planted and where I've planted it.
