Recycle salad containers

This past winter we've purchased a ton of greens for our smoothies. We ended up with a lot of these containers.. I decided to put them to good use :)

I took two containers:

I then took a nail and added holes in the bottom of one of the containers: (ignore the dirt under my nails as I was planting seeds :) )

After adding a few holes for drainage, I then nested the container with holes into the 2nd container.

Next step is to fill the top container with seed starting mix. I used a starter blend that was mixed with an organic compost.

I misted my soil before adding seeds. I then added a bit more soil on top, misted again, closed the lid and labeled my container.

I have grow lights that I place mine under but I am sure these would do fine in a sunny window.
