Today seemed like the perfect day to start some flower seeds inside. Mausi’s Auntie M had come to visit, and so the 3 of us set to work making little paper pots out of old newspaper and a funky little wooden potmaker I bought at Lee Valley.

With Auntie M‘s help, Mausi carefully filled all of the little paper pots with seed starting soil and then we planted seeds in each. On today’s planting list: a Calendula mix, a Zinnia mix, French Marigolds, Thyme, Oregano and Coriander.

Neatly arranged in a plastic tray with a clear dome on top, these little pots are now sitting on our kitchen counter under a window, and with luck we’ll soon have little sprouts to tend.

    She is so adorable! We’ve been doing lots of sprouting too. I have to check out the potmaker, I think using newspaper is a great idea.
