I agree! I think I use the 1/16th, 1/12th and 1/8th tsp spoons the most. Brassicas have relatively big seeds.

Someone compiled this list, I don't know if it's true. But my "dash" is definitely smaller than a 1/8th tsp from another vendor.


TAD = 1/4 tsp
DASH = 1/12 tsp not 1/8 tsp
PINCH = 1/16 tsp
SMIDGEN = 1/32 tsp
DROP = 1/64 tsp

I've made some scoops smaller than 1/64th tsp for VERY small seeds, but it is too easy to drop seeds from them, or catch them on something and fling the seeds into the air "SPROING OING OING".
