When you buy your eggs, some of the containers, like Eggland's Best, are clear plastic containers. Buy those and save them for starting seeds. They have a clear plastic cover that covers where the eggs sit. Just fill those spaces with dirt, drop in a few seeds, cover with the plastic cover, and you have little miniature greenhouses!

Great idea. Works even better if you leave half the egg shell in the bottom & poke a couple of tiny holes with a needle before putting in soil & seed. Helps retain moisture & decomposes with nutrients. More little holes can be poked through the carton easily for rootlets growth.
