Toilet Paper Roll Seed Starters

Spring is in the air and I've been ready to plant my garden for at least a month. Fortunatly, I remember all the times I've been burned (or really frozen) planting too early. Here in Utah there is often a crazy snow storm that shows up just after I have planted my garden, but not THIS year! I decided to harness all of that Spring fever into planting seeds INDOORS and taking them outside when the coast is clear. I started saving toilet paper rolls after I saw a bunch of beautiful art projects people had pinned on Pinterest. Well I tried making one...FAIL. Instead I thought up this little project that doesn't need to be pretty, just practical.

    Agree. This beats our use of egg cartons!

    Like, ORIGINAL!! I have saved egg containers to try this. Your idea reeks of "Lets not waste a thing". Great!

      @Melissa K i like the egg shell idea, also, because they go back into the cartons. did you see that one? @Melissa K I am going to try both, but maybe use a cardboard box, cereal, pop tarts, lots of things come in a box ! then use a plate or cookie sheet to set the boxes onto, to catch drainage.

    Great twist on the newspaper starter pot.
