Today it was 70 degrees (well, 68, but I’m counting it) and after running and yoga I decided to make it a trifecta and do some gardening. I saw on Pinterest that one could make seed starters out of newspaper. I don’t have newspaper but I do have a lot of paper grocery bags stacked up in the garage. I folded them into little origami boxes and then added the potting soil and seeds. They are sturdy because the paper bags are stiff but they are also biodegradable so once the seedlings are ready to transplant the whole little box can go in the ground.
I have big gardening plans this year. I am going to try bell peppers, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, basil, spearmint, lavender, cilantro, lettuce (a lot of lettuce!), butternut squash, and strawberries. I have been so excited to start planting that I could barely contain myself today!
