Growing seedlings in recycled K-cups.
I received a Keurig Coffee Machine for Christmas and found it was kind of fun to pop that little plastic cup into the machine and watch it spew out my freshly made cup of coffee within minutes. It always has that just made fresh taste which is awesome anytime of the day but the drawback is you have these little plastic cups that are only used once and then you throw them away.
I didn’t like the idea of throwing these away so I started to clean them out and wash them and tried to figure out how to use them again. I always start seedlings in the spring and since these cute little
plastic cups have a hole in the bottom and are about the right size to start a seedling I decided togive it a try this year.
They are super easy to use. Just fill them with potting material and put in the seeds and set in a sunny place and wait for the seedling to sprout and when it gets big enough to transplant just gently squeeze
on the sides of the cup to release the new seedling and transplant to your favorite gardening spot.
I am happy that I can get two uses or more out of one of these K-cups with recycling them.
