An Update and Some Gardening!

Remember that internship I got a few post back? Well that turned in a promotion! Which for me meant another new schedule. I have been working 5 days a week from 4pm to 12:30am. On a better note, another schedule should be happening any day now. I will be on a more normal schedule. I am also planning to take a class this summer and some more in the fall. I hope all of this will allow some time for blogging. Anyway, on to the fun Spring things we've got going on!

I wanted to share how I made these cute little seed starters. These little pots are super easy to make and you likely have all of the supplies on hand!

What you will need:
-Newspaper/or any other paper really
-A spice bottle or another cylindrical object

Cut your paper into strips. The width will vary depending on how tall you want your pots. My widths were about 5 to 7 inches and the length should be able to wrap around your spice bottle twice. About 12 inches.

Wrap the paper around the spice bottle. Leave some excess off the bottom. Tape the part you just wrapped around down (about where my thumb is below).

Fold up the bottom. This process is similar to folding up the bottom of a penny roll. You want to tape that part down too.

Pull the newspaper off of the spice bottle and viola! You have your very own little newspaper seed starters. Fill them with dirt and some seeds!

Here are our little flowers coming up! I planted Poppies and Johnny Jump-ups. The Poppies are not showing yet. These cups hold up quite well, even in the pouring rain.

What sort of things have you been planting this year? Share it in the comments!
