My new plant ID cards

My new plant ID cards

I wanted people to see what I was actually growing. I came up with the idea of photocopying photos and descriptions of the potatoes I was planting and laminating them. I needed something to mount them on. My hoarder (don't knock it) husband produced the excess wooden window slats we had removed from the Ikea blinds we bought a few years back. Cut in lengths and pointed at one end I was able to mount the cards on them using my stationary stapler.The heavy duty stapler was a bit heavy handed. I have since found out that you can buy UV laminating film which is recommended for use outdoors but it will be interesting to see if these last till the end of this season.
