For the Gardeners

                                                                Okay for all of the other garden lovers out there, I have stumbled upon a little gadget that can save  you some $.  The Potmaker.. you can make your own seedling pots out of newspaper and then just plant the entire pot in the ground so the roots all stay in tact.  Quick and easy.. and makes me want to go buy more seeds even though it's getting a little late..  (Family.. Opa would have loved to whip a couple of these out for us wouldn't he?...miss him so much..)     ~~~On the fly~~ I just made a little pot like this using what I had to work with.. cut 3 inch wide strips of newspaper and wet them down with water then I used the bottom of a baby bottle  as my form wrapping the strips around it and then tucking them under the bottom of the bottle.. not as crisp on the bottom but it seems to produce a very similar result.

  3. This is a great, cost efficient idea! I had taking little seedlings out of pots. They are so fragile. Thanks for sharing this tip. Yeah, it's too hot here to plant a seedling now. But next spring, I will remember this!
