Thanks to the person who posted all those videos yesterday, those were all very good ideas! One I've been meaning to share: for starting plants, cardboard egg cartons work great! It's so much cheaper than buying those greenhouse starter kits, and if you feel so inclined you can even rig up a covering with saran wrap instead of letting it sit open. You can use the styrofoam, too, I'm sure, but they don't wick water or let excess out the bottom so you have to poke holes. And they're nonbiodegradable, so you have to remove the plant before transplanting to its premanent home. Whether you get your eggs in styrofoam or cardboard, though, start collecting and have your family collect cartons now and you'll be ready for spring in no time!
