DIY Plant Marker Labels

It is that time of the year again. Time to start plant seeds indoors and be ready right after the last frost. This year, thanks to an agent with the city I live in, I have many new varieties of vegetables I would like to try. But, before I start, it is time to go out and get some planting trays. I am still debating whether to go out and buy the plastic greenhouse trays with the compressed soil pellets or to use old egg cartons (and, I have many of those saved for a small farmer from whom I get farm fresh eggs in the summer) with soil starter. While looking through my supplies, I realised that I was low on plant markers and was looking around to find something new. I now have a wonderful resource to make at least 20 different plant marker labels and wanted to share with you what The MicroGardener has on their site. Take a look if you want some neat ideas! Here are a few images from their site to tempt you into looking!
