Gardening Tip: Make Your Own Seed Tape

Planting a garden can be a bit daunting when it comes down to the nitty gritty rules of spacing tiny seeds inches apart. Save yourself a backache and make your own seed tape using this simple tutorial by AmberLee of Giver's Log. It will have your garden goodies perfectly spaced and thriving in no time!

Not only is this a great way to plant seeds exactly where you want them in your own garden. It is a fantastic way to give your collected seeds to friends in a ready to plant fashion!

Here's what you'll need:
-1/4 cup flour + enough water to make a paste
-strips of paper to make the tape: black and white newspaper (no colored ink), single-ply toilet paper, and a thin paper bag all work
-something for dabbing on drops of the paste, like the back of a paint brush
-and seeds!

Visit Giver's Log for the full tutorial. Thanks AmberLee!
