My family is very prolific when it comes to Easter egg coloring. I have 5 dozen eggs in the fridge ready for the big event.
There is a lot of slightly pastel egg salad in our future.
5 dozen eggs means 5 empty egg cartons just in time for spring planting! I love to recycle the cartons to start seedlings with the kids. They love to watch their tiny kitchen counter gardens grow in the window-filtered sunlight.
Cover an area with plastic or newspaper sheets to protect a working area.
Scoop dirt into the egg carton.
Choose seeds to plant in each of the dozen spaces.
Water regularly, set in sunny spot and watch egg carton garden grow!
