My pumpkin seedlings are doing incredibly well. If I ever needed a project that showed kids how seeds grow… I’d use pumpkins. Right after this was taken, I moved the ones in the ramikin to a glass. They like it better that way. Also, best to ignore the dirty window!
One of the things pinned on my Pinterest Garden board is a way to recycle an egg carton for seed starting. Many of my seeds in their Baggie greenhouses were getting mold, so they needed a change. I had an egg carton in the trash! Ok. We can do this!
I took my seedlings one at a time, pulled out the best 3 – 6 of each variety, wrapped their little roots in a little hunk of damp paper towel, and put them in the carton. The sixes had roommates in their egg cup, threes were alone. I tried to label them with the little sticky tabs on toothpicks… Didn’t work. So I settled for putting them on the carton, which did work. I was a little surprised.
I put a few drops of water in each cup, and off we go. I did not put the onions or carrots in there, mostly because I have a lot of each of them and they are doing ok in their Baggie. I am hoping for good weather and a not-sick hubby this weekend so he can go get my soil. Fingers crossed!
