The 99-cent store in my neighborhood sells peat pots for seed growing at an unbeatable price.

A pack of 24 peat pots costs 99 cents!

Compare this price with Walmart’s online price for a set of 12 2.25-inch peat pots for $8.14!

You can start 24 summer vegetables for under a dollar!

  • 5 tomato plants
  • 5 peppers
  • 3 eggplants
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 3 squash- different varieties
  • 3 basil
  • 2 oregano
  • 1 mint


Think of the possibilities!

Sure, you can make your own seedling pots from newspaper or old toilet paper and paper towel rolls, but 4 cents for a ready made pot is a good bargain.

Peat pots are also handy for rooting cuttings because once roots grow, you can plant the peat pot in the ground and not disturb the young roots.

I'm known as "EdenMaker," as well as a "Foodie Gardener" on the web, but you can call me "Shirley" anytime! When I'm not eating or growing my own food, I'm busy designing gardens and producing garden TV shows! When it's time to cook, I ask my family, "What country do you want to visit tonight?" Thank God for WeightWatchers, most of my fruits and veggies are "0-Points." Some of you know what I'm talking about!
