Seed Tapes are an efficient work saver in the garden but they get so expensive sometimes that I have taken to making my own to save money too.
This is a fun project for the whole family to get in on, when my kids were too young to handle garden tools they had fun making them and it made them feel that they were an important part of things around the house.
I also like to do these at my leisure over the winter months to get ready for spring and summer plantings and get a jump on the growing season..
