Prefered method of keeping seeds organized
So you have a huge collection if seeds that just keeps growing & growing. What is your best way of keeping them all organized while ensuring mold, fungus, pests, pets, cold, heat, humidity, nosey people, etc do not harm them in any way? I keep all of my seeds in those tiny ziplock baggies you find in craft stores (almost always by the beads). The name of the plant is written on the baggie, & I have an excel type app that I use to keep track of where I got it (bought, harvested, trade, or SASE), & the year that I got it with the exception if the date is given when it was harvested. I have everything in categories: fruits, vegetables, flowers, peppers (since my collection is so huge, it had to have it own category), herbs, other (those that I'm not sure where to classify), & seeds I have put up for trade. I was keeping them all separate by usng 2gal ziplock bags & smaller bags for the seeds I intend to trade. This tactic was becoming combersome, aggrivating, time comsuming, & flat out annoying. I lucked up & found stackable containers at Walmart. Each container snaps underneath one another, making a tower as high as you need it to be. I was happy to have found them, despite being almost $7 for just two compartments. They're allowing me to keep everything in one location, including my tiny baggies, markers, pens, envelopes, etc.
