More planting occurred today. We just did not have enough tomatoes and the new varieties came in. So today Moskovich tomatoes went in as well as Gilbertie Paste tomatoes and more California Wonder peppers. Lemon Balm and some supplementary spinach went in. Last time I planted indoors, I made some paper pots and filled them with some potting soil. I decided to go a different route this time.
For Christmas, my in-laws gave us a Kureig coffee maker. It makes a perfect cup each time. The one thing I hate is all the waste it creates. For a time, I took off the foil top, dug out the coffee grinds, then recycled the plastic bottom and the foil tops.
Then I realized they look like perfect little pots, and coffee can be used as a potting medium as well. So off came the foil tops with a small knife and with a few jabs of the knife, I loosened up the coffee grinds. I then added a touch of potting soil and water and poof...there I had some little one inch pots. Perfect to start seeds and then transplant them into larger newspaper pots.
Let's see how this goes.
