A thought on seed storage
I have lots, and LOTS of store bought seed packages and baggies of seeds I’ve saved and dried myself. It can get a little difficult to keep it all organized, but I have a solution! You may even have everything you need already. I use and old CD storage case to store my seeds. There are handy little clear pockets that are just the right size to keep seeds in.
Simple way to showcase your seed collection
It’s enjoyable to peruse through your collection of seeds when they are stored this way, because it’s like slipping through a scrapbook. Except, you’re looking at seeds, not family photos!
More benefits of this seed storage method
- simplicity and enjoyment
- keeps seeds cool and dark when not in use
- keeps moisture out
- encourages further seed collection and seed swapping (sharing with fellow gardener friends!)
- you can organize like with like, or oldest to newest seeds to keep tabs on how old seeds are getting
- know when your inventory is getting low on your favorite seeds
Isaiah 58:11 “The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.”
A video is worth a thousand words
In my YouTube video above, I explore my seed storage case, showing how I keep my oldest seeds in the back, and my newest seeds up front and center. I also give you the garden tour of the day! Enjoy….. and here are some photos from the garden these past few days. May you be blessed mightily in Jesus name!
Adirondack Blue Seed Potato Experiment
I have never grown this variety of potato before. But, oh the color; I couldn’t resist trying this out! This week, I finally planted them in the ground, and now I eagerly await to see the sprouts appear above the soil. It will be interesting to see how different, or alike, the leaves look, as compared to the Red Norland variety I have planted in my front planter. As soon as they appear I will provide video and photos! For now, here is the seed potato before I covered it with soil.
