In my last post I showed you my collection of seeds and my list of what I was going to plant. Today I want to show you what I will be planting them in.I love to recycle and this is a great way to do it. Introducing my seed trays. Ingenuous? Not hardly. Economical? You betcha! This is a nice, easy and inexpensive way to grow seeds(or at least I think so). All you have to do is cut the lid off the carton and that becomes your tray. Punch some holes in each section, sit the carton in the lid and wal-la! You have your seed tray.The next thing I did was turn the lid over and line off 12 squares. Then I wrote on each square what seed I would plant. Pretty easy so far. Now one last word of caution. The last time I planted seeds in an egg carton I had some mold that started appearing in the soil. I figured out there wasn't enough drainage. So to prevent this from happening this time I decided to do this.Hopefully the rocks will keep the seed tray from sitting in too much water. So, there's phase two of my planting. My next post will show(hopefully) the completed process.
Now I have to show you what I stumbled upon yesterday. I had to run into Dollar General(love that store) and look what I found!I thought they were the cutest little planters. I could easily see them hanging on my drab looking fence. And guess what? They only cost 2.00 each! They said, "Susie, take us home!" So what else could I do? They also came in a pale blue color too. They look so springy and cheerful! I couldn't refuse. Now I'll just have to figure out what to plant in them.
