Because Im not browsing facebook and pintrest 3 hours a day, turns out I have a lot of spare time! Who would have thought. So I've been working on the yard. Cleaning up existing flower beds, revamping flower beds, making new ones, digging gardens, starting vegetables. Turns out I really really enjoy gardening...both varieties.
The other day I did have a chance (using Hubby's work computer...shh!) to glance at pintrest. I ventured for the first time into the "Garden" section of Pintrest I was looking for gardening tips and ideas. Found some great ones, recycled gardening "tools". So without even going to the store I was able to start my cucumber seeds so come the May, after the full moon, they'll be ready to go in my newly dug garden.
|What you'll need|
Take a sheet of newspaper, cut it in 2 down the center crease lenthwise, so you have 1 page of newspaper. Then you fold the page in thirds. Position your can of soup like in the picture, the roll it. Put a piece of tape to hold it together, then fold in the bottom and tape.
Then simply fill your cups with dirt and plant your seeds. Keep them in the house in the sunlight until after the Full Moon in May I'm told. Then its planting season. I am using these to start our cucumber seeds in the house. You can't use these for root vegetables such as carrots and beets because they won't be able to grow down, those are best planted straight in the garden. But plants such as beans, cucumbers, tomato can be started now in the house.
Don't forget to water them after you plant the seeds. How you wonder? Using your recylced watering can of course!
Using a plastic milk jug, one with a screw on top, punch holes in the cap and fill with water. VOILA! Free watering can, good to keep in the house smaller than lugging the big one in from outside. Pots and a watering can for FREE! And of course all these ideas came from none other than Pintrest!
