I’ve begun to gather supplies I will need to start seeds for my garden. Mike was busy yesterday hanging plant lights while I made little pots from newspaper. I have some plastic starting trays, but not quite enough for the seeds I plan to start, so rather than purchase more plastic, I recycled newspaper into pots. I made 8 dozen pots in under an hour. Here’s how it’s done:
Roll the folded paper around a small juice glass so that about an inch or less of it overlaps the bottom of the glass. Tape with a small piece of masking tape which will eventually decompose along with the newspaper.
