Where to start seeds and a little inspiration

It's been a long time since I wrote the last post. It's been quite bussy arround here. So, I also haven't gotten the time to start my herb garden yet. So - sorry - have to write about the herb garden some time later.

What I want to tell you about today is where to get seeds started. My favourite way is to plant the seed into old yogurt or other plastic cups. I wash them out and punch a hole into the botton. Then I put already wet soil into it, put some seeds into the cup and a little bit more wet soil on top. If you don't water the soil before planting the seed it can happen that the seeds are being washed away by the water.

There are many other options on where to get your seeds started. For example
- toilet paper tubes
- egg cartons
- milk cartons

Do you know other ways? Let me know!

A very inspirational website concerning DIY projects for you garden but also for all other kinds of stuff is  There are a lot of projects with which you can recycle all kinds of different things for your garden, so you can keep the costs low.

Next time I will let you know about one of my greatest inspirations: Mike Liebermann -  urban organic gardener.
