Seed tapes are timesaving planting aides -- strips of biodegradable paper featuring evenly spaced seeds. Rip newspaper into inch-long strips using only black and white sections (to avoid the toxins that come with color). Make a paste of one part water for every four parts all-purpose flour. Dab seeds in the mixture and stick them in the center of the strip. Your seed packet should provide the recommended spacing. When the glue is dry, roll up the strips and seal them in separate plastic bags. Add a tablespoon of salt (to keep seeds dry) and the empty packet (as an informational label). Store your seed tapes in a cool place. When planting time comes around, you will reap the efforts of pre- sowing!
This is a great cold-weather project that'll save you plenty of planting time in the garden.
Seed tapes are strips of paper with seeds adhered down the center of each strip and evenly spaced. When you plant the strip, the paper and glue decompose and you are left with perfectly spaced crops.
Now you have a winter project to work on, dreaming of that garden you intend to plant come Spring.
