Finally, we’ve had several days of sunshine and no wet weather! 🙂 With enough warm sun pouring through the windows my seeds were ready to be planted. I saved up some applesauce containers, egg cartons, and coffee pods to use for my seed planting. In the above picture I planted some red sunflower seeds, and one if not two have already sprouted and this is just day 3!
Some forget-me-nots I planted in used coffee pods. I emptied out the coffee to use as fertilizer outside and then placed some potting soil int these tiny little cups. To stabilize them since they are not perfectly flat, I put them inside egg cartons I cut into thirds. My fingers are crossed they sprout soon!
This year I was able to plant some of the seeds my indoor grown marigolds left behind at the end of their life cycle last spring. Only one sprouted, but I planted more. 🙂 It is doing really well for now.
Be sure to use your own recyclables when starting your flower or vegetable seeds. See what happens, do they work or not? 🙂
