Last week, Kit and I made a seed tray out of empty toilet paper rolls. Much like the expensive peat pots, we will plan these directly into the garden. We bought a five dollar plastic box and cut each roll in half.
Next, we took out the rolls and put in several inches of dirt. We pressed the rolls down into the dirt, like cookie cutters and filled some of the rolls with more dirt as needed. We left some soil in between the rolls to help the moisture travel between cells when we water them.
They are doing wonderfully now and almost all the cells are up! We planted San Marzano paste tomatoes, oregano, dill and basil in this tray.
We need to get proper plant markers or popsicle sticks and we need more TP rolls to start another tray!
