I thought I'd be "green" and make something to form the pots out of recycled newspaper.
The seedlings are about ready to plant in our garden beds.
Hope you find this gardening tool helpful and fun.
I started with clay to form a cylinder about 1-1/2" in diameter and 1-3/4" long.
I also formed a rod about 3" long and 1" in diameter.
You could also use wood instead of clay.
The ceramics was dried and glaze fired in a kiln for the final finish.
I tore out 2-column width and 1/2 page long strips of newpaper. 3, or 4 pages at a time works well.
To make the pot, set the pot maker on its side and wrap newspaper around the base.
