a Baby Garden

We've decided to grow a few things this year. We both love gardening, but weren't sure when we were going to be able to start. Well I guess you make it work if it is important to you.We followed this tutorial on how to make newspaper starter pots at the best price... free! Plus you can plant the whole thing when you are ready because the newspaper biodegrades very quickly. All you need is water, some newspapers, and a 15 ounce can.

So far our little garden has cost us 80 cents for the seeds and $3.50 for the potting mix which we still have plenty left to use for the big pots we'll use later. We're big spenders, I know.


  1. Whoa - slow down there! You didn't spend all $4.30 at the same place, did you??

    Seriously - that looks amazing! Good luck!

  2. Sweet, thanks for the advice. I might have to start my own starters this year! Maybe I might actually have a good garden this time!

  3. Looks good. I'll bet you do well. I haven't started my plants yet. I need to get started soon!

  4. This is such a great way to start a garden. Good luck. Hope you and Danny find out that you have green thumbs!
