It might be the middle of the summer, but you should start thinking about getting your fall garden ready.

If you don’t have much space, to plant everything outdoors, then you can certainly start your seeds indoors.

Here are some DIY seed starter pots that you can make with items you have lying around your house.

Plastic Strawberry Carton 

What makes these great is that you can use them year after year.



To make them, you line the container with some newspaper, then add your soil and seeds. When the seedling is ready to be put into your garden, you plant the entire carton. It will lessen the shock for the plant.
