Dissolve cornstarch in water and boil till thick. Transfer to squeeze bottle and add coloring. Lay out towel strips unfolded and place a dots on one side spaced appropriatly. Place seeds on dots and fold over.
Alternative for square foot gardening. Just use 2 paper towels, one as a base one as a cover. Put 16 dots on a towel then put the seeds on the dots and cover over it. Lay the whole thing in a square and cover with a light covering of soil.
This worked well over the 2011-2012 winter with Red Cored Chanteny, Nantes and Danvers.
