Saturday Morning Sowing
Remember my little video for making newspaper plant pots? On Saturday morning, The Boy and I actually put our pots to use by gum.
We smooshed moist potting soil into them..
Wrote-up some labels using old cut up mini-blinds...
Snuggled them up nice and cozy into a couple of deep foam meat trays...
Sowed some seed...
Sprinkled a little soil and water on them. And finally... placed them in a sunny window.
Now for the hard part... Waiting.
This is a true test of my patience. I like to cheer them on whenever I walk by that particular window. A little "You can do it! Grow babies, grow!" never hurt, am I right? I'll keep you posted on their progress...
Edited to Add on 3 Apr 2012: Please note that I've used black and white newspaper to make the pots as black ink is made of soy and safe to use around edibles. Coloured newspapers should be avoided as the ink may contain some toxins.
You have a great day now.
