It's been a busy few weeks here. Plans for the Farmer's Market are coming along quite nicely and I'm feeling like it's going to be pretty great.
In between phone calls and helping Hubby with his computer business and being a mom and.... , I've been making seed tapes. You can find tutorials for how to do them everywhere these days. What it comes down to is some kind of flimsy, easily broken down paper, glue of some kind and seeds. I prefer tp, elmers and just about any tiny seed.
You see, I'm not the most patient gardener in the world and I have a bad back. Given the choice of carefully planting seeds or scattering them everywhere, I'll invariably choose the scatter method. The problem is that it wastes a ridiculous number of seeds. Then they have to be thinned and I'm not a big fan of thinning either. It makes me sad to pull out a perfectly good seedling, plus it means I have to get down and pull them. Seed tapes solve all those problems. You can buy them pre made, but I'm also cheap and I like to have a lot of variety.
When they dry, just roll them up and store them away until planting time.
