A friend of mine posted this Seed Storage idea on Facebook, like a good and slightly obsessed pinner (aren’t we all?) I pinned the link for future use. This year my veggie garden received a facelift in the form of a complete rebuild (thanks Hubby!) and I was able to plant more veggies. I’m also starting more plants from seeds and at the end of this planting season I had three medium sized Tupperwares full of various seeds (with a few doubles…). It only took me two weeks to complete this project. A project that would likely take someone without a nursing-obsessed five month-old and a attention-starved three year-old (both perfectly normal, but no less frustrating at times) about an hour to complete.
But it is finished!
I now know I have every type of squash on the planet and need to buy parsnip seeds.
I did have to make mine slightly differently as my shoebox was not wide enough, so I did mine horizontally. Luckily, the Cheerios boxes from Costco and Sam’s Club were long enough to make the dividers. Since it was more tricky to make the dividers due to my box options, I opted to not cut the dividers tops into tab shapes. Instead I used paper cut into strips and taped to the tops of the dividers for labels.
Now I can’t wait for Spring so I can use my seeds!
