We get cold enough as it is, though only to 28-30F the past two winters. Turning cool early this year it seems, though, so I'm wondering if it will be a tough year. Labeling things in my greehouse isnt so bad as I don't hoe around plants, etc.

I am thinking a square concrete markers lying on the ground. I bought mini aluminum pans for 15 cents each. A bag of premixed dry sandcrete (no rocks). I am going to fill each pan with wet concrete and etch in the name with a pencil. I am going to set at the base of each mat. The mini blinds idea is interesting. I've done almost everything else. I grow 30 varietys in ft Myers fl.

Brandon, that seems like an awful lot of work when you can photograph your landscape and digitally label them within seconds.

Photos need to be redone often due to the sun. Stakes have to be picked up to weed whip. Hanging anything on the plant is temporary. What's a extra minute or two stirring some wet concrete in a bucket for a permanent flat marker? Kinda like a cemetery with the cheap flat tombstones. Mowers will drive right over them.
