Sowing little Seeds

It's the time of year we start sowing tiny seeds in our gardens--and in several weeks we'll be thinning them out, and then again, and again.  Carrots, turnips, rutabagas, mustard, lettuce--none of them thrive when they are sown too thickly. VegHeadz gardener Cathi W (she's been on the ball this week) found an article about making simple seed mats with glue and cheap napkins or toilet paper which will evenly space your seeds and eliminate the need for thinning.  The time it takes to make the mats will be paid in full by the thinning time saved.   It will be fun to see how it works.  See detailed instructions on the Hickory Holler Farm Blog.
