Frugal Gardening: Seed Starting Part II

I could have renamed this post “Seed Starting from the recycling bin”

I had so much fun with the ice cube tray seed starters that I started to wonder what else I had hanging around the house that I could use.   When these sorts of “use what you have on hand crafting” moods strike the recycling bin is the perfect starting point :-)  One of the items that I found in the recycling bin was a card board egg carton….

    Haha, I can’t make fun of old school ice cube trays too much… we only stopped needing ours when we moved to our new place a few weeks ago. I double checked Amazon to make sure you can still buy them before we drilled holes into them.
