This is a picture I took in front of my happy place–the seed aisle. I love shopping for seeds. The packages are so colorful, offering hope of beautiful and delicious home grown vegetables. I could spend hours (and sometimes do!) debating between varieties of cucumbers, green beans, and tomatoes.
Before you head to the store to buy anything, organize your seeds–then take your list, leave any kids at home, and have an enjoyable and productive trip to the seed aisle!
Step 1: Review your garden plan.
Step 2: Gather all your seeds. Square foot gardening uses so few seeds that one package can last for several years. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Step 3: Decide which seeds you do not want–give them away!
Step 4: Review seeds you will use, and organize them by planting schedule.
Step 5: Identify seeds you need, create a list to take to the store.
In this video I show how to use my Planting by Color e-book to organize your seeds. You can create a gardening binder and use sheet protectors to protect the pages and organize the seeds according to when you will be planting them.
