I went to the feed store the other day and bought 50 starter pots for my garden. It cost me about $4.00 for those. I started thinking about it and thought you know? I can pretty much do the same thing for free. I had been collecting some egg cartons so I just used those to plant my strawberry seeds. I mean if you are going to have a large assortment of plants, then it's worth it to save a few egg crates. Because after all, one of the biggest reasons for starting a garden is to save money not spend more right?
