What's In a Pot?

One of my first intentions in my garden is to make more use of the area I have for growing my own organic produce. Green Action #4

Committing to growing my own vegetables means getting plants in the ground.

I've had some help with that because I asked for a tomato plant as a spring-time gift.

My sister found a cherry tomato in this biodegradable pot. This pot made of recycled paper fibers helps support a healthy transplant of the seedling an
d reduces the need for pots made of plastic.

You can also look for pots that are made of recyclable plastic. One of our local nurseries will take these pots back and pay you a few cents for them.

Growing my own vegetables is only as sustainable as I can make the whole process.
