Post Origami newspaper seed raising pots
OK People, we have enough time to prepare till we hit the growing season. I already ordered remaining seeds from Eden Seeds last night and did a planning on my veggie garden about what to grow. I also turned the soil as I am not growing any winter crop.

I was looking for a how to article to convert old newspapers into seed raising pots and found some articles.

The best one is a photo instruction to prepare seed raising pots out of newspaper with origami. I just did one and it is working.

I am thinking the sides: you can fix them with a bit of flour and water mixture. ;)

That is pretty good, although, I tend to just use old toilet paper rolls.
No folding required except to fold the bottom over.
