    Brilliant. Love the recycling and the concept. I may do this with lettuce seeds and stagger the planting dates so I'll always have fresh lettuce.

    I am going to try this with my Freshman Biology class next year. We had a green house donated to our district, and we need to fill it, but are on a tight budget. First day of break and I find school stuff to do!

    This is pretty cute. I decided to see if the egg cartons I get would degrade when wet, and they seem to. I'm saving them for next year. If anyone has had experience with the kind of egg carton that seems to be made of something similar to papier mache, I'd be interested in hearing how it worked out.

    I save all of my empty toilet paper rollers along with my Paper Towel's. Works like a charm.

    This is a GREAT idea. other than using these for small kiddo "telescopes" and starting fires, I had not much use for these.

    I've been wondering what to do with all my paper towel and toilet paper rolls, My granddaughter has made enough bird feeders for a lifetime and we all have desk top organizers with the tubes and shoeboxes. This is great.

    I attempted to do this for this years growing season and I have to say I need to re-think this IF I ever do this again. In my case I used tp cores, setting them up in old bread pans. Well, upon attempting to remove them for planting, the cores fell apart!! The litterally unwound

    So what then do you do, or how do you go about, keeping the cores from doing this, rubberbands? The seeds *must be watered, therefore, impossible to prevent them from coming unglued...

    Any suggestions?

    You might also check with local nurseries to see if they have anything (chipped pots, bags of fertilizer, mulch, potting soil... with holes in it, etc...) they can't sell that they would be willing to donate or sell at a steep discount...
    Whatever you are from nature, keep to it; never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for...
