It’s that planting time of year that I love so much! A couple of years ago, I decided to organize my seeds, and it sure has made spring gardening so pleasant. I can see at a glance which seeds I need to buy, saving me from multiple duplicate purchases. It also helps me remember to plant all of the vegetables and flowers we enjoy. Best of all, I don’t have seed packets strewn all over my laundry room anymore!
I used a box with dividers that held greeting cards, but any box will do. I assigned new names to the tab dividers: Tomatoes, Peppers, Greens, Lettuce, Squash, Melons, Root Veggies, Peas/Beans, Flowers, Herbs.
I like to grow heirloom seeds (non-hybrid) and save seeds from them—which is really an easy process, and saves you lots of money on seeds. Once the seeds are well-dried in fall time, I put them in a little ziplock bag, label them and file them for next spring’s planting.
Just an easy idea I thought I’d share…
