Thanks to Tales of a Domestica for this saving money garden tip on how to make your own seed tape.
Planting small seeds can be tricky. I am terrible at thinning my veggies once they get growing. I hate to throw out a good thing…. But if you don’t thin the seeds you won’t get a good product. That I know all too well! So to eliminate the need for thinning the little seeds I made these seed tapes.
Cut your toilet paper the length of the garden row. Fold it in half and cut it down the middle to make 2 long skinny rows.
In a small bowl mix one part flour to one part water.
Use a paint brush to put a dot of paste (flour water mixture) the distance recommended on the seed package. Each seed is different so read carefully. Drop 1-2 seeds per paste drop, fold and seal with paste, roll up for storage. Roll out the seed tape in your garden row , and cover with dirt!
