Just using a #2 lead pencil on blinds or stakes-even wood works great and
can last more than a year.

Someone on this list gave me the idea last year and I want to say thanks and
pass it on. I was reminded of it looking through catalogs this morning with
all the nice wooden garden markers.
I had two mini blinds that had been replaced in the house. If you cut up the
slats they make great markers. I found that longer pieces didn't work real
well - they tend to bend and break or pull out of the ground, but up to 10"
or so do really good. Great winter job for kids. I cut the "bottom" at an
angle or a point for outside markers. Saves a few bucks anyway. You can
usually find some really cheap at thrift stores.
Also for UV proof markers that last the entire season, use the Sharpie
INDUSTRIAL markers. I just got a 3-pack at the office supply store - way
cheaper there than the seed catalogs. There's nothing worse than labeling
all the rows or flats with something that fades!
