SORTING SEEDS Organizing Tips

This time of year, is a great time to catch up on organizing all of the seeds that may have been harvested from your garden, and the new ones that you may have purchased to sow in your garden in springtime. I have small glass jars set in a wooden storage unit that I store herbs and loose flower seeds in. Another type of storage that I use for keeping my vegetable seed packets organized is using a photo storage box that I picked up at a craft store.  They’re the perfect size for packets and can all be stored into one large container
