Re-purposing Egg Cartons And Enjoying Some Messy Fun

Standard

 

 

This week, I wanted to get on with planting some more vegetable seeds as time is slowly but surely ticking away (how is it May already?!).  I have a huge stack of egg cartons sat on a shelf in the kitchen and knew these would make perfect little seeding trays.  I separated the lid from the bottom, pierced holes into the bottom of each little egg section for drainage and then set that back into the lid.  We took our tuff spot outside along with the egg cartons, compost and some spoons etc and we enjoyed some fun in the sun.  It was just what was needed after an extremely hard morning.

    • Thanks! It sure was 🙂 We have quite a few little shoots of life…it’s what happens to the little plants when they get transferred from inside to the veg plots that will be the interesting part 😀
