I bought a container of strawberries and as I went to throw the container in the recycle, I stopped myself. I knew that the container could come in handy when it was time to start my seeds.
And I was right.
I had a package of older seeds. I wasn't quite sure what percentage of them were going to work out. It turns out, quite a few were bad. I had to keep sticking more seeds in the soil because so few were germinating.
But, some did pop up.
And it was time to separate these guys.
I found a spoon would do the trick of digging them out while preserving the roots.
Before placing in the pots, I filled them with more seed starting mix.
Then, I popped them into the pots, just like so.
I had saved this container that some spinach we bought came in. I knew it would be perfect to hold my plants. It also makes it nice because I can bottom water.
To water these guys, I just pour in about a cup of water, the pot and the soil sucks up the water from the bottom, and there is no damage to the plant. It is great!
