Care giving means so many different things to so many different people. It can mean total care, it can mean providing food and shelter, it can also mean caring for someone while they’re not feeling so good, it can mean little acts of care the list could go on and on. I like to think of it as encompassing various responsibilities and activities that are a part of daily life, as well as activities that enrich our lives as a family. Part of caring for our family means trying to make sure we’re all eating healthy foods. That means when spring comes, making our annual seed order (and this year an order of a rooster to protect our growing flock), so we can set our garden in motion. Seed starting is a family affair.

By the time we’re done, our dining room will probably be filled to the gills with trays of seedlings waiting to be planted.

We recently started the process of planting all the seeds that need to be planted indoors prior to placing them in the ground outside. We started with peppers and tomatoes. Dan had learned, in one of our gardening groups, that newspaper makes great little seed pots… Not only that, but it’s a great way to re-purpose newspaper. We actually don’t pay for a newspaper, so we ran to a convenience store in town and picked up a few papers for 50 cents apiece – much cheaper than seed pots would have been for all the seeds we need to plant.

Supplies You Need for Seed Starting

You really don’t need that many supplies; in fact, it’s more affordable than people think. With a little creativity and re-purposing, you can save a LOT of money.

  • Seeds – We prefer heirloom seeds because then we can harvest our seeds and re-plant the next year.
  • Newspapers – How many depends on how big your garden will be.
  • Seed starting trays, with or without lids – We picked up plain seed starting trays, no lids, at our local hydroponics store.
  • 1 regular-sized tin can
  • Scissors or box cutters
  • Potting Soil Mix – This will probably be the most expensive item on your list.
  • Water

How to Make Newspaper Seed Pots

Making newspaper seed pots is so simple. If there are a few of you working together, you can start an assembly line and help each other, making the process go by even more quickly

Making your seed pots… Take a regular-sized tin can and use that to measure and roll the newspaper into a sort of pot.

Then be sure to water and place in a sunny spot indoors.

Dan has another seed tray set-up in the garage underneath a grow light. He’s already got some lettuce coming up. We have so many plans for this spring and summer… These little seedlings get me so excited for the season ahead.
