Storing Your Seeds

What works for you?

Last weekend, I got all of my seeds out and was ready to start planting in my starter trays when I realized that the last frost is probably still weeks and weeks away. A couple warm days gave me the gardening bug but if I plant now, I won't be able to transplant for a long time, so I settled for organizing my seeds instead.

I had been saving tic tac bottles from friends and family over the past few months and I decided to get those out and pour my seeds inside. It worked perfectly (except for my pea seeds, which are just that big; they still fit, but the whole pack won't). Then I put cute labels on each container and voila, a much better, dryer storage system than paper packets. Sure, you don't have the info on them anymore, but you can either save the packets or look up each plant online.

How do you store your seeds? What will you be planting this spring? Share the details in the chat.
