  1. The plastic starter trays are convenient when planting seeds. But how do
    you keep the soil around the roots when you put the plants in the ground?
    I’m experimenting by making seed pots from water soluble
    material–cardboard tubes, cereal boxes, etc so I can just set them in the
    garden without disturbing the roots. I wrap a cereal box around a soup can.
    Cut the box even to the height of the can. Then hold it together with
    masking tape or a rubber band. I snip one box end tabs into triangles
    several times so they will fold into each other when I wrap the box around
    the can, thereby making the bottom. Then I use masking tape to hold the
    bottom together. Cardboard shipping tubes may not need bottoms. I plan to
    make a square or rectangle frame of 1×2′s or 1×4″s to hold these pots. When
    the plants are ready, I can put each pot in the ground without disturbing
    the roots. Hopefully, the cardboard will dissolve into the soil. I’ve not
    done this yet. It may or may not work.

  5. I have a new greenhouse! This video shows me planting in it for the first
    time. I have never started tomatoes from seed before. I’m sure I didn’t do
    it “right”, but I’m giving it a shot. The tomato seeds were purchased from
    our very own +Gary Pilarchik (most of ‘em anyway)
