Prep & plan and be ready to plant your garden in no time. Kids will love helping you make these seeds strips! Simple and easy.

Whenever I plant seeds, they end up in a huge clump. But when I make seed strips, I have a shot at 1. things might grow in a row. 2. things might get planted and grow.  Making strips is a good way to get your kids excited for gardening (and they may want to help).

The strips are simple to put together.   You just need seeds, newspaper strips and  a mix of flour and water mixed.  Then when the temperatures are right, you can get you strips and plant your garden quickly. You can make organic seed tape (strips) just as easy.

What you’ll need:

newspaper in long strips
seeds
3 tablespoons of flour
1/4 cup water
small bowl & spoon
marker

Pour the flour and water into the bowl and mix together.  It should be kinda like pancake batter consistency, but a little watery.

Take the newspaper and rip it into long strips. Fold them in half long-wise so there is a crease.

Read the seed packets to find out how far apart and deep they need to be planted.  Write this information on the edge of the paper strip before you put the seeds down.
With the spoon, apply a small amount of four mix on to the crease of the newspaper strip.  Take the seeds and place them onto the newspaper and allow to dry.

Repeat for the different variety of your seeds.  When it’s time to plant, you can use your hoe and dig valleys for the seed strips to be placed in. Cover them up and water.
