This year I decided I wanted to create some kind of seedling planters that could be placed right in the ground with the starts. It seems like the tiny seed holders that I normally use just aren't big enough to let the seed get started properly and when I dig out the starts and put them in the hard South Dakota soil they fail because they are taken out of their nice soft home.
So here's how I created some new seedling holders that I'm excited to use!
Take a section of newspaper and fold it in half. (Or thirds, just depends on the paper.)
Wrap it around a jar, can, or other object or similar size.
Secure with tape.
Fold up the ends of the newspaper to create a bottom on your holder.
Secure with a piece of tape.
Pull off the can. Fill with dirt and plant your seeds! When it's time to plant in the garden just stick the whole thing right in the ground.
