|Rick I have a large tote in the garage and if I'm ready to get rid of a blanket or a neighbor has it in their trash the blanket gets put into the tote really I have two totes now but I have those little Big Lot greenhouses and they really come in handy in the early spring I just get one out and drape it over a greenhouse and tie it down makes the baby seedlings nice and cozy of course I put a couple of jugs of hot water in them to help. I recycle everything always picking the neighbor's trash esp. if I see things when they get ready to pitch them out I know they all think I'm nuts but hey what ever works :)
I can't bring myself to plant tiny baby seedlings either! But I do just repot them for the winter and leave them outside to fend for themselves and they do just fine Rick you might try it some time if you end up with babies again, I use a quart pot and put them in between the gal. pots so they won't tip over and are protected from the weather a little more.
Rick Don't water your seedlings too much it doesn't hurt them to be on the dry side a little you and the watering the seedlings so much really tickles me remember how many little babies you've killed from too much water I remember you having such a time last year
Jill you are right about the pencil staying on the metal markers I have names on the back of mine of who I got the plant from and they look like I had just written them.
The only problem I have with my blind labels in my gal. pots I'm over wintering they seem to come out of the pot somehow probably my outside cat (long hair probably gets caught on label) is the culprit for that one though she likes to rub on the edge of the pots all the time and turns my pots over too I've never seen labels come out when she does it just figure that's what happens the pots are up right with the label just laying on the top? At least so far I haven't come up missing labels or not knowing where they came from thank goodness
