My Old Seed Box
I don't know for sure what this was, but I sure do love it for seeds in my green house. I found the old primitive box with drawers at a garden show I was selling at. It came just as it is with rusty muffin tins in each drawer, they actually look as though they were made for it but it is hard to tell. I collect a lot of my seeds from my own yard and the muffin tins are a great way to store them, ideally they should be labeled but rarely do I not know what plant the seeds are from and a surprise can be fun too! I also keep seeds in dry airtight antique mason jars, such as hollyhocks that take up more room. It is fun to share seeds so I keep small envelopes and markers near by so visitors can take a gift home after a visit to my garden. Another tool I use for planting seeds is an old artist brush, the handle can be used to create a hole in the soil and then the soil can be gently brushed back over the seed. This is a little bit more of my green house, hope you are enjoying the tour.
