How to Make Seed Tapes
You will need: seed, ziploc bags, paper towels cut in 1 1/2" - 2" strips folded in half.
Squeeze bottle, food colouring, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 c. water
Prepare glue: Dissolve cornstarch in water over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Mixture should look opaque and cling slightly to a fork before dripping off. Let it cool and transfer to the squeeze bottle; add one drop of food colouring and shake the bottle to make the 'glue dots' easier to see.
Prepare 'seed tape': Lay out paper strips and place cornstarch glue dots across one side of the fold, spacing the dots according to the planting directions on the seed packets. Place seeds on top of the glue dots. If seeds are tiny, use a toothpick dipped in the glue dot, then pick up seed with the wet toothpick, and place on glue dot. The seed releases from the toothpick when it hits the glue dot.
Fold the other side of paper towel over on top and let it dry completely.
Store in labelled ziploc bags, include seed packet for future reference.
