Because the *&^% voles were eating or killing (by tunneling around) our corn seedlings, hubby wanted to try germinating the corn in little peat pots instead of directly into the ground. But, you know, those things ain't cheap.
Another option would be to make our own biodegradable pots. We've seen ads for little wooden paper pot makers that are beautiful and, we're sure, work nicely, but it bothered hubby to pay $20 for two little hunks of wood.
So, I tried to duplicate the process by using a small round jar, but they just didn't sit right because the bottoms were bunched funny.
It was then that my super-powers at origami came to the rescue. *snort*
I have a small book on origami that I bought about 22 years ago.
I used the instructions to make a vase
I'm so pleased that origami can be done for something useful. I used to make pretty, but useless, things like flowers instead....like this lily (hubby still has several of the ones I made in his office; it's sweet).
Do you make your own germination pots or use peat pots or neither?
