My plastic stakes with the names written in permanant marker started to fade withing days so I made little copper stakes with the plant variety stamped on them. Now, listening to you guys I'm getting paranoid. What if a racoon or groundhog comes along and pulls out my stakes? What if the racoon wants to mess with my head and he shuffles my stakes?
Argh... I JUST posted about this a few days ago on another thread. Yes, it's easy to forget and no, permanent marker is not permanent. Luckily you have two types that should be fairly easy to distinguish. Let 'em grow and let us know.
