* egg carton starts

Posted on May 11th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

Some of my starts didn’t start, so I’m restarting them.  I, uh, got a little lax with my watering on the last batch so a few of the babies didn’t make it, and some of the others just never sprouted to begin with.  This egg carton was on top when I took the recycling out this morning, so it seemed the obvious vehicle.


Each type of plant got 2 cells, and I put 2 seeds in each to hedge my bets.  Sharpie labeling right on the side, just like the tubes.

The tube-started guys that did make it are looking pretty good.  Here’s my pumpkin plant, kermit the sprout.


He’s doing the best, with 6 true leaves now and a nice hefty stem.

ETA:  This didn’t work at all.  They dried out way too quickly.
