The Truth about Containers: 1) Needs to hold soil. 2) Needs to be able to have water poured in it without fallingapart instantly. 3) Needs to have holes poked in the bottom for water to drain out because seeds hate swamps. 4) In an ideal world, would have a lid that also gets holes poked in it, to keep the humidity in while the little green friends germinate, but you can look after that with anything see-through: a clear plastic bag, the wrappers that come with store-bought flowers, a Pyrex lidHere are three pictures showing some of our "seedling" operation this Spring. (Lots more
underway but this gives you an
idea). There are 3 plastic containers that we bought salad
greens in. Sort of can't stand them but find ourselves buying them anyhow. There is a small
plastic container that I bought sour jube jubes in at Angelino's (busted!). There are three of
those black-bottom+clear lid round jobbies that we got take-out from Na Ha Thai or Diwa in
There is even a small golden plastic thingy with a very sturdy lid that held fancy individually-wrapped Raffi chocolates. Perfect teeny little cups in which to start our perfect teeny little lemon grass plants. It's all working! And, honestly, didn't some of us go a little overboard on the take-out this COVID-y season?
