While we're in the garden, I want to show you these tomato labels that I made with Diego a couple of months ago:
They are super easy to make, and seem to be holding up nicely in the water and sun:
Cut a big piece out of an old takeout container that is #6 clear plastic (salad-bar style).
Draw on it with Sharpies or other permanent markers and punch a hole in it.
Open your doors and windows (this is a little stinky and no doubt toxic).
Put it in the oven or toaster oven on parchment paper, foil or a piece of a paper grocery bag at 300˚ and watch closely. All of the sudden, they will curl, shrink and then flatten out, just like regular shrinky-dinks!
You can use a paperclip to fasten them onto your tomato cages.
