Whenever I go to school I grab myself a copy of The New York Times, one of my favorite games to play that is in the newspaper is Ken Ken which is a pretty cool number game that kind of gets me frustrated but is fun. Over the past couple of weeks I have accumulated a lot of newspapers and I don’t want to just throw them away so I googled some different ways I could use them and I came across newspaper pots! Why didn’t I think of this before?! Well I purchased tons of seeds from Seeds Now and I haven’t planted them all so I decided to make a newspaper pot and get some plants started in those on my window sill.
This is very easy and simple, gardening doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult, just requires patience and creativity.
I’ve been having trouble growing my lavender seeds, I’ve tried planting them twice outside so I decided to plant them inside and see if that changes anything, I also read that lavender likes dry soil so it’s good to mix the soil with sand. Hopefully this works for me. This is my second newspaper pot, the first one I made I planted summer bibb lettuce and they are growing so nicely.
Literally the first thing I do in the morning is look at my plants and see how much they’ve grown, they give me so much joy, it’s so nice to see them blossom out of nothing!
Happy Saturday ❤
