Little Olive and I started some seeds a few weeks ago - we did tomato, corn, zinnia, and basil. I thought you'd like to see how we've done with our seedlings:
Basil (top right) and Zinnia (bottom)
We made the newspaper seed pots by wrapping a single piece around a cup and folding over the corners to try and keep it intact. For the most part, the pots did keep shape - we didn't want to tape bc we intend to plant the pot right into the ground - recycling at its best. :-) We had saved a Starbucks coffee carrier and the pots are sitting in it. The carrier has also helped maintain shape. Hope to be showing some pics of the zinnias, basil, ears of corn, and big red tomatoes sometime over the summer.
