For years I would transplant my veggie seedlings into 4-inch plastic pots before I put them in the garden or out on my mini-farmstand. I did my best to recycle them, but I discovered that the easiest thing to do was make my pots out of recycled newspaper instead. The best part is that you can plant the whole thing right in the soil and the newspaper will decompose, saving time and helping to prevent transplant shock. Making the pots is a really easy project and a great activity for kids who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. -Patti the Garden Girl
