I haven't bought tea that comes in individual little paper packages in a while, but I like barb's suggestion of recycling those tea envelopes for seed
packets; I'll have to remember that next time.
I went to Wal-Mart looking for the small brown envelopes but didn't find them so wound up with a package of paper coin wrappers for under a dollar instead.
Sure, they have printing on them but there's still space for writing - so... fine felt-tipped marker to write what's in them, two folds at the ends and two pieces of tape to seal, and almost instant seed
packet. I appreciate the pretty ones of course, but at this point in my life time is kind of tight (as in I'm supposed to be working right now) so some things just have to be *done*, not done *artfully*.
