|broccoli sprout in an eggshell starter|
|i'm using these 6"x6"x4" pockets for lettuce and spinach|
|and i planted zucchini, squash, and cucumbers in the 6"x8"x4" pockets|
i like to start seeds in rinsed out eggshell halves in old egg cartons. it's a good way to reuse the cartons, they're the perfect size, everything stays neat, and once the seeds are big enough to transplant all you need to do is pick up the eggshell and crack it apart enough the the roots can eventually break through. it's much easier than trying to spoon out seedlings and worry about cutting the roots.
for the left side of the vertical garden pockets i started three types of lettuce (bibb, vivian, and a musclun mix) and spinach. i planted zucchini, squash, and cucumbers in the large pockets, and i'm putting scallions and broccoli in the pockets on the right side.
