Homemade Seed Mats or Seed Tapes

Instead of scattering seeds then thinning later, creating seed mats allows you to space out the seeds according to the suggested spacing on the back of the seed package or Square Foot Garden spacing recommendations. Seed mats or seed tapes are helpful for planting tiny seeds, such as lettuce and carrots that are hard to sow one at a time. Also a great project for a rainy day when you can’t get out to the garden.

Soaking seeds before planting is an “old time” gardener’s trick that many new gardeners are not aware of. When you soak seeds before planting, you can significantly decrease the amount of time it takes for a seed to germinate.

Using Mylar bags and food safe buckets, you can buy in bulk and store smaller packages of basic staples and create your own long term food storage.
