What I Shed Today

toilet paper roll tube peat pot substitutes

on March 7, 2014

Thanks to The Snail of Happiness for suggesting that toilet paper roll tubes, cut in half and stuffed with a growing medium, make even better pots for starting seeds than those pressed out of peat that the garden centers sell. The homemade version doesn’t deplete peat bogs!

Also, two Zaxby’s “Zalad” trays offered themselves for use as mini-greenhouses. So, as close as our recycling bin and compost pile, I found everything I need to sow Amish Paste tomato seeds. For the win!

shedding style: re-purpose
destination: a sunny window, then the garden

Comments welcome … what might you shed today?

      Dr. Snail, as I think of her, is an interesting read … a scientist who publishes in wool, so to speak. I love the way paradigms of the dominant culture are getting “grown around”!
