EGG CARTON GARDEN - A SUPER EASY WAY TO GROW STUFF!
What little one doesn't love helping the grown-ups in their life in the garden!
Simply put some potting mix in an egg carton, plant microgreens in the mix, for example, sweet basil, cress, rocket and mesclun, recycle a spray bottle to water the egg carton garden casting a gentle spray over the egg cups, keep egg cups moist but not drenched, watch and wait! Keep it on the window sill and your little one can each day watch their garden grow!
Cut or pick microgreens above the soil line when they’re very young as their first leaves appear. Harvest time is two to three weeks after sowing.
OR plant seedlings in the egg cups which can later be transferred to the garden, cut apart the egg cups and plant them directly (egg carton and all) into the garden.
