This year, I invested in very cool green starter kits that included biodegradable containers and really fun dirt pellets that expanded when wet.
If nothing else, Justin and Morgan had a wonderful time making the pellets expand and they did a nice job planing their seeds.

Anyway, we planted our seeds in our eco-friendly containers and somehow even managed to take a decent photo of Justin. The biodegradable container proceeded to mold on top of my filing cabinet for a few weeks until the seedlings were just tall and spindly enough that we thought we better plant them.
