PSA: Label your Seeds

Would just like to take a moment to make a public safety announcement. Make sure you label your seeds while pre-soaking them, and to mark the containers you put them in.

Did you know that cauliflower, spinach, and deadly nightshade seeds are all virtually identical to each other?

I'm glad I kept all of mine separated out in to labeled cups and made a map to my starter cel locations for each of them!

And now you know, and knowing is half the battle! YO JOE!

RE: PSA: Label your Seeds

I learned my lesson about labeling. The first seed tray I started, had about 20 different types of seed in it. I had them all mapped out square by square on paper. I cut the trays up into 6 cell segments and rearranged them all after a couple of weeks (arranging the plants from highest to lowest) without physically marking all the segments. I didn't really realize my mistake until after the damage was done. They were my first real seedlings too, I had no idea what any of them were.

RE: PSA: Label your Seeds

I have a problem about the label thingy too. I shelled out my dried blue lake bush and pole beans. I just set the bowls on the table to dry some more, knowing left was pole and right was bush or vice versa, I can't remember now, it was months ago.

My sweet wife came home and moved them while cleaning. So now I don't know which ones are poles and which ones are bush!

It wouldn't be a big deal if I hadn't already set up my trellis for this spring.
