Collards in Dixie cups
OK! I have more than a hundred collard plants growing. I was in a hurry and didn't have any newspaper to make pots from so I decided to buy little Dixie cups. I bought 3 ounce bath cups and the price was right--under three dollars for 200 cups.
I also decided to put my plants outside for a few days. I am trying some new grow lights and the plants aren't thickening up like they should. More sunlight should be just what the doctor ordered.
The tip of the day--the Dixie cups. You can write on the sides with a permanent marker and they aren't waxed so they make a great easy, and did I mention cheap way to pot your plants.
