Start Seeds in Egg Carton

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.

If you use the cardboard type cartons (bottom half only of course), you can plant the whole thing into the pot or garden, the cardboard will disintegrate.
