I’ve always been pretty terrible with plants and now I fear it has become a self-fulfilling prophesy. So in an effort to break my black thumb streak, I’m attempting to start portions of my garden from seed. I’m really quite worried.
I’ve heard a number of people and websites mention that you can use cardboard tubes as starter pots. What a great idea considering that you usually have a few available (I cut up a gift wrapping tube) and that you can just plant them directly in the ground. The tubes will provide just a little bit of extra warmth for your newly transplanted seedlings and help protect against those nasty buggers.
I really hope these work and if not, I’ll be back here in a couple weeks lamenting how terrible I am with plants.
