	Another alternative is a "Vibra-engraver" to make a permanent
name.  Inserting the aluminum label into the soil here results in
corrosion to the label after a year or so, and adding aluminum salts
to the soil isn't a desirable result, so putting the label on
a wire "stand" is helpful.
	Label tapes do last a long time, though they often fade--red
seems to be especially bad.  The lettering is still there, but you
have to look closely--which isn't always a bad thing.
