Pin to Identify Seeds

When starting flowers from seed, I mark each hydrated pod with a push pin to identify which pods contain a particular flower. For example, yellow for marigolds, red for zinnias, blue for petunias, etc. After danger of frost is past and I plant them outside, I mark the plants with Popsicle sticks with the type of flower written on the stick, until they grow large enough to identify by sight.
