Egg Carton Seed Starters Year 3

This makes the 3rd year that I've used this method of starting seeds, and each year I've gotten great seedlings!
Here is how to make the mini-greenhouses : Link 

This year I had a new helper :)

I've used this method as well: Link 

Both methods have their benefits. When you use the egg carton method, you create a mini greenhouse that you don't have to water as often while the plants are tiny enough to keep the lids closed. However, you have to disrupt the roots when you plant them. Using the newspaper method, you have to water more often, but you can plant the newspaper and all into the ground. Last year we used both methods, and we saw NO difference in the plants once they matured and produced. We will probably use both methods again this year too because we are out of cartons and have tons more vegetables dancing in our heads :)
