Garden Tips ~ Use Muffin Tin to Create Perfectly Spaced Holes for Planting #Garden

Garden Tip on planting seeds, use a muffin pan to press holes into your dirt to form perfectly spaced holes for planting #Garden, #Tips, #KidsHow many of you are going to plant a garden this year?  If you have kids helping you it is sometimes hard for them to know how far to space the plants or seeds.  Here is a quick tip… use a muffin pan to create perfectly spaced holes to plant your garden seeds and plants in.  Of course always read the package for spacing guides.  You can use muffin tins, mini muffin tins, large muffin tins for different spacing options.   They often have muffin tins at the dollar store, you might check there as well.

Please note this works best on freshly tilled soil, that is nice and aerated, soil that is rocky, hard or has a lot of clay in it might not work to well.

I love the idea of using a muffin tin to help space the seeds in my garden. Especially if I am going to have my kids helping me do the planting. Another great tip for letting kids help in the garden is to have them help you make or place creative markers for the plants. Normally rocks that they have painted to look like vegetables. I also like to let them put some of my metal garden decorations in different spots in the garden every year. Anything to get them excited about helping me garden. http://www.brendamichaelsburiedtreasures.com/dept-30100

I’ll have to try this out some time! My little girl is wanting to learn more about gardening. I thought that I would try to teach her a thing or two about the process. The trial is trying to make things easy for her. It is just impossible. Maybe using this method to spread the plants will be very useful. http://salemfeedandgrainandmore.com/garden-center/

How clever! I’ve finished a majority of my landscaping, and want to plant a small vegetable garden. A muffin tin is a perfect idea, and the holes will be evenly spaced 🙂 I know what I’m doing this weekend!

Lol I’m starting off small with it potted in a planter. If I don’t kill that then maybe next year we’ll go bigger.
