I grew up working in our ½ acre garden every summer.  This is how my parents taught us to work and kept us fed all year round.  The part of gardening that broke my little heart was when we had to thin, the radishes, carrots, turnips, kohlrabi, etc.  I went to all that work at work only to pull out more than half the little seedlings.  Recently I saw in a gardening store a strip of paper that had the little seeds evenly spaced along it.  You planted the paper and the radishes, etc. came up 1 inch (etc.) apart.  Brilliant!  Here is my version of paper with the seeds evenly spaced along, so that all you have to do is plant the paper.

Step 1:

Toilet paper (I use the last of a single ply roll)
Serrated knife
Washable white glue
Seeds (I used radish seed, can be any small seed that needs specific spacing)
Storage container (to store finished product until planting time, not shown)
Nice job, I do something very similar with<a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Garden-All-Year-Long-With-Recycled-Paper-Seed-Stri/" rel="nofollow"> recycled paper</a> ;-)<br> <br> I don't know about you but it sure beats out having to bend over constantly in the garden. :)
My thought exactly. Yours is better than mine. Great Job. :)
