    you carry 2 and 3 liter bottles of soda around when you ride your bike? and fountain sodas can't sit in the kitchen until whatever time of the day and or night to be fresh to drink when you are ready.
    I like the idea of the bottom as a pot. but even better since it is not that deep, how about a water tray for a pot to sit in?

    dode, no deposit here... if I could get .20 that would be possibly a better idea. but since not....... besides second rate?? it is just a stick of plastic that you write on and stick in the ground right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    i agree with Andrew since there is no return here eather. why go out and pay for something else when u can already make something u already have in hand.

    most of the time i only buy 20oz. to carry around. but there was this time when i actually needed them to cool down the highlanders at night but since i have a set up now they just sit around in my room.

    A warning: sharpies will wash off and bleach out in the sun: 1 season and they fade to nothing. I have taken to using a soft lead pencil as a result to mark the labels. Learned this the hard way!

    Oh yeah: I use BurgerKing soda cups. They are white plastic. Recycling is good!

    Yes, the sharpie marker will fade. I lost the lables on two of the clear plastic cups I was using to cover some seeds. Luckely I know what the seeds are and have a record of when I planted them. I use either the store bought plant lables or use small blank address lables with a ball point pen.

    thanks for the warning. although since my plants don't sit in the sun i guess it is ok... :-) besides. if you look at your plants all the time (don't tell me you don't) wouldn't you notice the label going bye bye? a plant i traded came with one of those store bought lables. and the writing was fading and washing off... i just refreshed it and it is good as new. i am sure i will go to the real lables as soon as i find them arround here. will probably go to buying them off line. being that i need to find those rose pots as well.

    I've just had a bunch of plant labels made up for the orchid garden where I now work.
    I had them all properly printed but I did it "on the cheap: this way:

    - get them printed as business cards
    - have them printed on thin plastic rather than paper
    - each card is printed with two labels, one above the other
    - they cut them cut in half with a machine so the whole thing looks professional

    The total cost was Rp18,000 (almost exactly US$2.00) for 100 cards = 200 labels. That comes to 1 cent per label.

    Cheers, Troy.
