Party Streamer Seed Tape
Isn't the weather on your neck in the forest as predictable as in Michigan? “If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes Burada is here, but I feel that your words apply to some states.
If you don't know when you can leave your backyard this spring, preparing homemade seed tape is a good way to get your head started and your little ones involved.
Why do you make seed bands instead of just sowing the seeds directly into the soil? Seed bands:
NOTE: Since I am not sure how dyes will affect plants as they grow, I recommend using non-colored white streamers.
Let's start! First, the responsible adult will need to bake the “glue için for the seed tape.
SEED BAND GLUE
1 cup water
1 tablespoon corn starch
Cook over medium heat with constant stirring to prevent lumps. When it begins to boil and gel, remove from heat. Cool to room temperature.
As the adhesive cools, roll the streamers to the width of the plot in your garden. Place the streamer next to an extended measuring tape. Using a washable marker or marker, draw marks on the streamer at the recommended intervals for your seeds. For our cucumber seeds, we spaced the dots at 3-inch intervals.
If you have preschool children, practice counting using the measuring tape and seeds. If your children are older, you can use the measuring tape as a number line for addition and subtraction.
Put a small amount of cooled “glue aya at each point and let your child put a seed at each glue point.
Continue until the seeds of all your spots have pulled out.
Fold the bar in half and press the bar by counting the seeds by gluing it into itself.
If you make seed strips from more than one type of seed, we recommend labeling the end of each seed strap roll so that you do not mix your cucumbers with your pumpkins.
Once the pennants have dried, the tape can be wrapped and stored for when you decide to go out to plant. Just open a ditch in your garden at the depth recommended for your seeds, open the seed line and cover it with soil. Give water as you normally would and watch them grow!
Seed bands also make wonderful Mothers and Father's Day gifts. You can even create “badges” seed tape and use them instead of bows!
