spring planting

Well, winter is over in the Pacific Northwest. This weekend we planted the peas and neatened the garden. Inside we planted starts.
My local farmer's market berry vendors take back and reuse the outer cardboard used for berry "flats", but they don't take back the inner berry containers. I can't bear to throw them out. So I end up with boxes of them in the basement. I am trying them out as containers for my starts. They should hold together long enough for the plants to grow and then I can gently break them apart and plant them outside. I reused garden trays and the berry cardboard for these starts. I am crossing my fingers for a good long growing season.
