Microchips IN the labels is surely the answer. Just point a reader wand at it and it tells you what you want to know. No pulling out. One day ;-)

>The trouble with pushing labels into the soil, here, except in the sand piles, is that there is no possibility of pushing, only hammering. This is because of the “annual recommended top-dressing” of rock mulch on the raised beds

We have so much discussion on various forums over what is sand or grit or gravel; but rock mulch! How large is that and what shape? or is it just another name for some of the 3 above.

(The word rock means different things around the English speaking world. Children here (UK) throw stones, rocks would be too heavy in general.)
