The time to get your own seed packets is early spring not the fall. If things are budding they are also giving out seeds. And if you have some homemade seed packets ready you are more likely to collect the seeds along the way and be better prepared for next year.
Making your own seed packets are also a really great gift. Last year one of my neighbors gave out seeds to this amazing melon she grew in her garden and said it was too amazing not to share. I just thought that was so thoughtful and jumped at the chance to get my hands on some tried and true neighborhood seeds.
I just loved designing this seed packet. I wanted it to be fun and fresh but also practical. On the back you can put all the seed instructions and information for next year. Plus you can print it out black and white to save on ink. Print it on a fun colored paper to give it that extra something special or to organize your seeds better by.
I love getting to read comments and would love to know what you like to plant at your home almost every year?
