From little things, big things grow

Lately I've been collecting pins from Pinterest about gardening and basically how to not mess it up! I remember looking at a pin that suggests using egg cartons to plant seeds in.

Yesterday my big girl showed me a seed from her orange that has begun to sprout. So we decided to not waste it and put it in some soil in an egg carton and let it continue to grow. 

The idea is to get it established and then plant it, carton and all in the garden. The carton will decompose, feeding the roots and plant as it continues to grow. Fingers crossed this little shoot will one day provide our family with lots of oranges for many years to come. Grow little seed. Grow!
