I’ve been keeping empty toilet paper rolls, k cups, and rotisserie chicken containers since we moved in… It’s driving Daddy B nuts and he calls where I store them all the “garbage closet.” That’s fair. I am happy to finally use the items, however, so he can quit eye rolling at my obsession over upcycling.
I cut the toilet paper rolls in half and filled them with soil. Each chicken container held about 13-14 of these and I used one pack of seeds for each container. Not sure how many seeds I was supposed to plant in each, but hopefully this will work!
I only had enough chicken containers for: tomatoes, basil, and lavender. I’m eye balling the MANY other seed packets and I’m not sure when those are going to get done. I will probably have to wait until our beds are ready or until our roommate, Dan, eats more rotisserie chicken. Haha. Go, Dan, go! I also need to use more toilet paper: Mission ACCEPTED. Actually, I have some k-cups to use still so I may try those first because I like the idea of finding a use for them. If you’re interested in how to upcycle k-cups, check out my friend’s blog post over at Zmombie.com about it.
