We are so excited that the tomatoes have started sprouting in our newspaper pots. The newspaper when planted will biodegrade into the soil within 2-3 weeks. So the roots will just grow through it in no time!
We also read a cool article in Better Homes and Gardens where they planted seeds in eggshells. The eggshells will also turn into compost for the soil so it's such a great organic way to grow seedlings! Here we are growing radishes. So awesome!
Next week we are cutting the sod out of the garden and building a fence. More photos to come!

The garden is well on its way. I found this cool organic pot maker on the Burpee website. It turns newspaper into little pots that you can plant seeds in. How cool is that? We want to have our garden as organic as possible. We are also using these Jiffy pellets that don't require pots at all. You just soak the pellet in water and the peat expands. The seeds have begun to germinate. Can't wait until it gets a little warmer so we can start working outside.
