It's time to start saving egg cartons again. Although I initially started only saving cardboard ones for seed starting, I learned this past year to appreciate using styrofoam ones under the cardboard ones.
Cardboard egg cartons with sprouting seedlings can be cut up and buried straight into the ground. Styrofoam egg cartons serve as a protective barrier while seeds are sprouting so moisture won't quickly disintegrate the cardboard.
Yes, I am already thinking about what supplies and garden tools I will need for next year.
