A month ago, we planted two trays of seeds in our first attempt at starting vegetables and flowers from seeds. We had about half of the seeds germinate and flourish, so it was time to move them to bigger pots.
We've been happy with all the supplies we've bought from Gardener's Supply in Vermont, the kind of people- and environment-focused regional business we like to support. When we saw the CowPots, invented by Connecticut dairy farmers who were looking for something to do with all that...waste, we had to try them out.
The seedlings are now adjusting to their oh-so-divine bovine digs. The pots will maintain their shape for weeks in our growing closet and when planted in our gardens will biodegrade quickly, donating lots of healthy nutrients to the soil.
So we're happy to recommend and support CowPots, another local business that is a model of creativity and sustainability. They even use methane and solar energy to power their farm. And in case you're wondering, CowPots don't smell like what they're made of, really!
