DIY Seed Container

Before spring planting, I refresh myself with charts on the best time to plant, looking at new seed catalogs and basically cleaning up all my past garden paper work. I also pulled out all the seeds I had to start my plants inside and realized I had such a mess with all my seed packets. They were just thrown in a zip lock baggie with no organization at all. I had to dump them all out just to find a couple of packets I was looking for.

It was time to organize my seeds in their own container.

I gathered all my seeds, separated them into categories I wanted in my storage container. I also made some index cards using my cutting machine.

I made labels for each index card in each catagory of seeds.

The seeds lay so nicely in between the index cards, very stable and not moving all around.  I love that all I have to do now is look for the name of what seed I want to plant and its so easy to find.

The plastic snap on lid will keep the seeds from being exposed to spills or high humidity in my fridge.  Its good practice to store seeds in a dry cool place.  Since its so hot and humid here most of the year, I keep the seeds in the fridge.
