Enjoy a Cup of Coffee?

Styrofoam Coffee Cups for Seed Planting 1-2010-1I certainly enjoy my coffee every morning (in fact you don’t want me not to!) but that’s not even close to what is inside these two cups. Can you guess to what purpose I’m reusing these two former fast food containers for? It’s not a hard guess and I suspect you already know exactly what I’m doing with them.

Rather than throw them a way why not use them for…

Starting Seeds! Of course!

Styrofoam Coffee Cups for Seed Planting Dianthus 1-2010-1
Last week I put some seed starting mix inside these two vessels and sprinkled some dianthus seeds I’ve saved. They are supposed to be ‘Firewitch’ but as I found them through a seed exchange the true identity may be something else entirely or some cross-pollinated dianthus. Whatever the case I’ll really enjoy seeing these late spring bloomers come alive!

What was the most effective and most unusual seed starting container you have used?
