Little Alexander · seed starting in egg cartonsIt’s finally time to start seeds again! After months of winter garden dreaming, action at last! First come the onions. We’re planting a bunch this year, maybe not enough to grow all our own, but enough to make a dent. While we’ve got some of those black plastic trays you see at garden stores for seed starting, we don’t have enough of them for 150 onions and everything else we’ll be starting later on. Here’s what we did: 1) Got a bunch of egg cartons (Thanks, John!) 2) Cut out a panel from the lid on three sides, so we have a flap of sorts on top, while stapling the original lid closed (we tried glue, but staples were easier). 3) Filled the bottom half of the cartons with potting soil, and then put in enough seed starting medium on top for the seedlings to emerge into. 4) Put in our seeds, one future-plant per cell. 5) Closed the flap on top to keep in moisture while the seeds are germinating.
