Waste Not, Want Not
So mom bought tomatoes from the market in this HORRIBLE plastic carton, and when I spotted it in the fridge, I thought, "Ugh, more plastic in the waste stream."THEN I thought, "Wait, this is a perfect little seed germinator!" So I filled it with seed starting mix, punched holes in the bottom of each cell, watered, and added organic Italian parsley seeds (Franchi Semetti, the best seeds on the market). Closed it tight, and put it in under the grow lights. Voila! Three fat cells of organic parsley will be ready for planting in the herb potager in less than a month. And I'll use this little treasure over and over again. Thank you, Mother Earth!
