Thank goodness it's the weekend!

One of the things on my to-do list is to make some of these newspaper starter pots:

I found this project on Pinterest awhile back and there's an AWESOME tutorial on how to make them. I think they are so cute and very practical.

We are (that is to say, Scott is) reading all about container gardening and we hope to grow a lot of delicious vegetables! About a week ago we planted tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, spinach, onions, and jalapeno peppers from seeds in trays; and the tomatoes, spinach, and broccoli have already sprouted! We have hopes of making our own salsa and canning it later this season :)

I do have a question for all of you though: how do you get rid of/prevent aphids? We had some windowsill cilantro and it was attacked by aphid-like bugs, it was very sad.

Happy Saturday!
