Flower Garden Containers
This blog post will offer some planting ideas for starting seeds using containers that you would normally throw away. This is a great way to teach young children about recycling. Burpee Seed Co. offers organic seeds designed to be planted in containers. Look for the flower pot on the bottom of the packet. Families attending Parent-Child Outreach group time are growing carrots in 2 liter drink bottles using organic seeds. According to the seed packet our carrots should be ready to harvest in 68 days. In addition to growing carrots, families will be planting mint, a bean stalk and a swimming pool salad garden. Also we will be learning about composting using our friend the earth worm. Follow our blog each week to watch our progress and get ideas for your own Lorax approved garden! Listed below are some examples of recycling to plant: Save those egg shells. When the seed becomes a seedling, gently crack the shell for drainage and plant in the ground. Cover the shell lightly with soil. Lemons make great vessels for holding small amounts of soil. Once the green leaves appear place the lemon in the ground and cover lightly with soil. Use toliet paper or paper towel rolls for planting. Cut rolls into 3-4 inch tubes . Place in a container to catch water run off. Fill tubes with seed starter soil and plant the seeds. When the green seedling appears, place the tube in the ground. Cover lightly with soil. Newspaper planting cups. Take a 3-4 0z plastic cup and wrap newspaper around it securing the sides and bottom with tape. Slide the cup out from the newspaper and you have another container in which to plant. Place newspaper cups in a plastic tub to catch water run off because they will leak. When the plant appears you can place the newspaper cup into the ground. Milk Carton Jugs are great for starting seedlings but they also make great containers to display and grow blooming plants. Make drainage holes in the bottom. Check daily to see if the plant needs watering. Plastic milk jugs will retain heat and the soil will become dry. Paint and add a ribbon to the handle. As whimsical as all Dr Seuss tales are , The Lorax " speaks for the trees" and advocates recycling and conservation.

Brilliant Easter activity - growing cress seeds in old egg shells. Cress seeds grow all year round, and quickly too so children don't become impatient waiting for something to happen.
Easter Idea, Cress Head, Eggshell
Egg shell Art It’s all too easy to accidentally poke a hole into an eggshell – but few people can do it in such a controlled way that it can be called art.
Growing #cress in empty #eggshells is a lovely #Easter craft. Remember to decorate the egg! Eat the cress on Easter Day!
Make an egg head - plant cress seeds in egg shells, draw on a cheeky face and watch it grow green hair
A lovely Easter idea: grown some Egg Heads. ooops sent to to the wrong spot. I wnt to try this.
A lovely Easter idea: grown some Egg Heads or Egg Buddies... LOL! Kinda like a Chia Pet!!! :~)
Egg Heads: 1. Wash out the egg shells, set them in the egg box. 2. Draw some crazy funny faces, using the goggly eyes. 3. Put cotton wool inside the shells, dampen them w/ water. 4. Sprinkle cress seeds all over the cotton wool – good coverage will give you a full head of hair. 5. Pop them on a windowsill, wait for the hair to sprout, in 2-3 days! 6. Add a little bit of water if the cotton wool dries out, but not too much. Can also use grass seeds, give eggheads a haircut.

Growing Onions Indoors #garden #gardening
Nifty Food & Plants To Grow Indoors If you don’t have any garden space or you live in a climate with a short growing season, you can still exercise your green thumb with these indoor plant ideas…a few will even produce fresh produce too! You’ll find tips for growing assorted herbs, a couple vegetables and a few neat-o plants to try your hand at. You can grow them inside year round but many will thrive outdoors during the summer months (if you have the space) but move them indoors once it gets a little chilly and before the first frost (imagine having garden fresh tomatoes over the winter!). Never Pay For Onions Again Enjoy Garden Fresh Onions Year Round With Tip: Here’s a great tip from MyByrdHouse: Onion Recycling Tutorial: I learned this tip a couple of years ago and have tried it and found that it works and is quite marvelous. I love to use fresh green onions but am always out or there is a slimy little bag of them in the bottom of the fridge. Here is my marvelous tip for growing them yourself and recycling a bit. The trick is to take the cut end (root side) and plant it in a pot, water well, give it some time and voila! You have fresh (and free!) onions at your disposal. This will work for a variety of different onions and the beauty of this tip is that as you use the onions, you replant the cut root ends to grow more. You can use a tub just for onions and haul it indoors during winter months (will need lots of sun) or if it’s just green onions you’re interested in growing, a large flower pot will do. Onion recycling Tutorial I learned this tip a couple of years ago and have tried it and found that it works and is quite marvelous. I love to use fresh green onions but am always out or there is a slimy little bag of them in the bottom of the fridge. Here is my marvelous tip for growing them yourself and recycling a bit. Onion Recycling 1. Take the onion you are using for cooking, green, red, yellow, or white, it doesn't matter. Cut off the root end. You are going to do that anyway. For a bulb onion like a red, white or yellow, I kinda core the onion and cut out a little cone there at the root end. This onion came from my garden so the roots are huge but the ones from the store work the same. 2. Take that root bit you cut off and plant it in dirt and water it well. You can directly plant this in the garden. I plant mine in a tub in my yard for easy onion access year round. You can even plant them in a flower pot in a sunny window. There you have it. In a few weeks you will have tons of green onions for the picking. Actually I just take my knife out there and cut them off at the ground and they grow me another onion quickly. If you just need the green parts for your recipe, just snip off a few of the green things and chop them up. The onion plant will send up more and that will actually stop the plant from going to seed which makes the onion tough.
