Lynn made these really cool seed cups out of paper that we had lying around the house. There are certain vegetables that we are planting that have to be started as already growing plants. These include our tomatoes and peppers. As a result, we have to start them inside and then transplant them into the garden when they are large enough. With the paper being bio-degradable, we'll be able to plant the entire cup into the ground and not have to worry about disturbing the roots.
