Recently married Jason of j2fi sent this hack in a long time ago, and I think its about time I posted it up, since its a great idea. You know those little plastic containers that tofu comes in (the kind you can use to make a badass soap dish)? The ones that look like this:
Well, they have another use. In Jason’s words:
These containers are also great in the early spring to get a head start on gardening. Just dump some dirt in there, plant a seed, and by the time the weather is warm enough to plant, you have a seedling growing healthy and strong :)
I tried it out with some parsley seeds and check it out!
They look like they are ready to transplant! Herbs can be expensive to buy in Japan, so you can save some bucks by planting your own. Growing plants will also give you a good way to put that old rice compost you’ve been making to use. And what’s more, you get to eat some delicious tofu to start off your project!
Thanks (long overdue!) for the tip Jason, and congratulations on your marriage!
