Slate Garden Labels

A rummage around the barn yielded a stash of old roofing slates and I thought they’d make sturdy plant labels. Thus far I’ve only made a few and those are primarily for perennial herbs. I like the idea of making them for all the annual vegetables we grow, and leaving a space beneath the vegetable name to add the specific variety in chalk or wax pencil, something removable that would survive the rain and could be changed from year to year.
