Organize those seed packets

7.4K
If you're like most folks, your seed packages end up in a shoebox, or bound together with a rubber band, and you have to dig through them hoping to find what you know is there when planting time comes. Over on vegetablegardener.com, Greg Holdsworth provides step-by-step directions for an organized storage system:

    Wow Douglas, this is an awesome little storage container. I love that it's made from foam core. I figured it was painted balsa wood. Foam core makes it doable for a non-woodworker too. I'm terrible about not planting seeds so I'm tickled pink for the seed viability chart. I had no clue there was a such a thing. Thank you so much! P.S. This is such an awesome post it's being clipped twice to Organized Home and Gardening.

    muchh better than the basket mine wind up in, and with it almost time to start seeds, I might as well go through them now Thanks Douglas
