The Best Spring Idea: Yogurt Cups For Seedlings
Together with spring the season of gardening is coming up to us. If you as well as I like fresh vegetables and greenery, this simple diy is for you. By the way you can do it with your littles and show them how plants are growing!
Things you need:
- yogurt cups
- your favorite seeds
- potting soil
- marker pen
Clean your yogurt containers. Puncture some holes in the bottom. Be sure to make the puncture holes from the inside of the container so the plastic points out and it’s easier for excess water to drain.
Add some potting soil to your cup. You want to add enough so that you have about 1/2 inch left at the top. Make sure you tap the cup once so that it is fully settled and you know you have enough in there.
Add some seeds! Add several to each cup, because some may not germinate. Be sure to read the back of the seed packet to see how far down you need to put the seed. Most seeds just barely need to be under dirt.
Label your yogurt containers so you know what’s what.
Water your seedlings gently and set them in a sunny window sill.
