Tomato identification ideas

gourmanda | Aug 11, 2014 09:45 AM

This year our tomatoes are all mixed up, save for the Eva Purple Balls which are distinct from the other three varieties. Even though I mapped out the plots, it appears things are askew. One year I had found the idea to cut out pieces of aluminum cans and, using a pen and a stack of newspaper underneath, sort of carve the tomato name into the aluminum. I then punched a hole in it and tied with string to the tomato cage. It worked well but was a bit tedious.

What ideas do you have for making variety tags that last a summer? (Note--these are varieties grown from seed, hence no pre-printed tag).
