Everlasting plant labels

Growing your own food and flowers is the frugal choice, but it's not always easy to remember what you've planted where. Plant labels are the obvious answer but are very expensive to buy. Instead of relying on your memory, make plant labels from margarine tubs. Simply cut rectangles around the tub and use a permanent marker to note the type of plant and the date you planted it on a rectangle. Then slip the label next to the plant or at the start of the row and you'll never mix up the broccoli and the cabbages again.
