Here is a gardening hack if you’re into new ideas on starting seedlings.


Yep, if you eat eggs they are stored in egg cartons and have additional use once you’ve used your last egg. Gardening. I went to Lowe’s and got the Jiffy mini nursery for 6.50 that comes with 25 pellets. Well turns out that egg cartons can do the same job, you just have to get the garden soil to put in the slots of the egg carton. The egg cartons that I am talking about only hold twelve slots but 2 egg cartons equal 24. I tried it at my wife’s suggestion and sure enough I have seedlings growing in them. I think my overall goal is to get one of those handy permanent gardening trays that have many slots and I don’t have to be concerned with the egg carton and jiffy limitations.
