Here's my pots, all filled and ready. I have a few mosaic pots from a while ago as well. They'll be holding catnip and lavender.
You can view my tutorial for these pots in the craft section, or by clicking here: Chalkboard Starter Pots Tutorial
My pinky makes the perfect sized hole in these little pots to drop a few seeds into.
Those thyme seeds were so tiny!
I lay my pots out on cookie sheets lined with paper towels while they're in the starters.
Here I'm closing the hole where I just dropped my seeds.
I'm using chalk pastel here to write the name of my seeds on the rim. I like lots of color, and i had these on hand, so I used the pastels. You could use regular white chalk or regular colored chalk as well.
Give everything enough water to moisten but not flood the seeds. Water lightly every day, unless soil is still very moist.
Here I'm watering the sugar snap peas and green onions.
Everything on its trays, awaiting a trip outside tomorrow morning.
I love the trays because i can move them outside for the sunlight during the day, but easily bring them back in at night to protect the sensitive little seedlings from the cold until they're ready to be planted.
