Seed Starter Idea

I originally saw this on Pinterest, and it led me to an outdoorsy kind of blog.

I think this is a great idea for starting seeds in late winter or spring. Especially if you live in a place like Wisconsin where the winter runs longer than any other season here.

This is also a great inexpensive way to do this. If you happen to find some two year old, stale ice cream cones in your cupboard, or if you see some on sale.  They are also a great club meeting activity for Cloverbuds or Explorers!

They seem pretty straight forward:

Fill a cone with potting soil, plant the seed, water and take care of until you are ready to plant.  Then just plant the whole thing in the ground. The cone is biodegradable. For storing them, you could keep them in a 9 x 13 pan with high sides, or in an old muffin tin.
