Do I want to grow food? Definitely.
Do I want to avoid plastic? Absolutely.
Okay, I’ll admit that I’m a bit late in the gardening season to start growing seeds. No matter, every day counts so I’m going to plant them anyway. It’s not crucial to start seeds indoors but I think the herbs will benefit by taking advantage of my predictable indoor “weather”.
I trekked all over my house looking for containers. I have plenty of glass jars but the lack of drainage holes would result in a disastrous mini-bog. So, glass is not an option unless a diamond drill happens to fall into my possession. I wondered if I should buy cardboard or ceramic containers. Then I remembered they would likely be packaged in plastic or discouragingly expensive.
SOLUTION: I’ve got the perfect container! Look at my beautiful cardboard egg carton!
I poked a small hole into the bottom of each segment for drainage. Then I placed the egg carton on a glass tray which would catch the water.
