This spring’s lesson: don’t repurpose excess Dixie cups for starting seeds.
Seriously. Ewww. The last thing we want around baby plants is this much mold.
Now, emptied K-cups make a great holder for the hydrated peat pellets – they even have a built in hole, whereas I had to (carefully) punch a hole in the bottom of the water cups. But they were very small and all my baby plants quickly out grew them, making them almost more hassle than it was worth.
Maybe some year I’ll break down and buy some “professional” seed starting equipment… Naaaah, probably not.
