Used Food Containers

These are great for starting seeds. Make sure they are completely clean and punch enough holes in the bottom for good drainage. The lid makes a perfect bottom dish. Egg cartons work well, too. Punch holes in each cup. Cut off the lid and use it for the bottom dish. Alternatively, seeds can be sprouted in egg shells. Break off just the tops, rinse out well and poke a hole in the bottom. Place in egg carton for drainage. The shell must be removed for planting. Even used food cans can be a pot. Using a nail, hammer holes in the bottom. Place a dish of some kind under it to catch the water that drains. Consider using milk and cream cartons. Just about any food container will work.
