You gotta love the internet.
There are so many people sharing their ideas and projects, ways to save money and how-to info, that’s it’s all but impossible not to learn something.
I don’t know who first came up with the idea of recycling plastic produce containers into mini-greenhouses.
I suspect it was a ‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention’ kind of thing, and thought up by a number of people in different places.
So when I came upon these seed-starting kits while out shopping, I had to chuckle. As tempting as they were, I knew better.
One plastic container that housed some delicious organic greens recently, a dozen Jiffy seed starting pellets, and some saved pepper seeds.
Moisten the pellets as per the directions, add seeds. Keep moist until seeds sprout.
The snug lid acts like a greenhouse, letting light in but keeping the seeds warm. Remove the lid as the plants grow.
