Seed Labelling for the Autumn Plant Fair

Remember to seek out the sign-in sheet on arrival.
No shared plate required this time. It's a quick get-this-done session.

The seeds have been prepared and packed into bags, now they need to be put into packets and labelled. Jeff has been super-busy preparing labels for us. All we need to do is turn up spend an hour or so putting bagged seeds into packets and sticking labels on.
