Thanks for all the welcomes!
ZoeMom do you mean styrofoam egg cartons won't work, but the pressed paper egg cartons will work? Do you leave the lid shut until they sprout, or cover with saran wrap, or how do you do it in egg cartons?
I saved a bunch of nursery 6-pack plastic pieces from last summer, as well as yogurt cups etc. Some people on You Tube use strawberry and blueberry cartons because they already have holes in them (I thought that was ingenious!) I also saved mushroom containers. They are styrofoam so tell me if it's the styrofoam please . . .
I'm going to use the cartons I saved, plus homemade seedling pots made out of newspaper (see You Tube), you can only use the black and white newsprint not colored newsprint. I also have some seed starting kits, the $6 kind with the plastic dome lids, that I bought last year during summer clearance for $2. So between what I have and have saved, plus the extras I can make out of newspaper, I think I'm good!
If anyone like me is new to seed starting, I have a bunch of links in my Jan 14 blog.
