How to plot geom_tile() with offset geom_text() labels indicated using arrows?

Solution for How to plot geom_tile() with offset geom_text() labels indicated using arrows?
is Given Below:

I can plot geom_tile()s with labels via geom_text() like so:

library(ggplot2)

df <- structure(list(x = c(1L, 2L, 3L, 4L, 5L, 6L, 7L, 8L, 1L, 2L, 
                           3L, 4L, 5L, 6L, 7L, 8L), 
                     y = c("A", "A", "A", "A", "A", "A", "A", "A", "B", "B", "B", "B", "B", "B", "B", "B"), 
                     z = c("stuff", "not_stuff", "not_stuff", "not_stuff", "not_stuff", "stuff", 
                           "stuff", "not_stuff", "stuff", "stuff", "not_stuff", "stuff", 
                           "stuff", "not_stuff", "stuff", "not_stuff")), 
                class = "data.frame", 
                row.names = c(NA, 
                                                                                                                                                                                                     -16L))

plt <- ggplot2::ggplot(data = df, mapping = ggplot2::aes(x = x, y = y, fill = z)) + 
  ggplot2::geom_tile(height = ifelse(z == "stuff", 0.4, 0.1)) + 
  ggplot2::geom_text(ggplot2::aes(label = ifelse(z == "stuff", z, "")))

plt

plt1

But I’d like to have the labels offset from the tiles themselves with an arrow (curved or otherwise) like this instead:

plt2

(Apologies for the poor drawing.) I’d like to have the label for each tile shown with an arrow like that one example I’ve depicted in the figure above.

I’m not sure how to do this, and I wasn’t really able to find an answer elsewhere.

Any help and/or pointers would be appreciated

geom_label_repel from the ggrepel package works well for this:

library(ggplot2)
library(ggrepel)

ggplot(df, aes(x = x, y = y, fill = z)) + 
  geom_tile(height = ifelse(z == "stuff", 0.4, 0.1)) + 
  geom_label_repel(
    aes(label = ifelse(z == "stuff", z, "")), 
    fill = NA, 
    nudge_y = 0.5
  )
