I got an email the other day from sweet Beka, a creative 14-year-old and the lovely daughter of my friend Valerie.
Valerie is a renaissance woman. She works, cooks, gardens, sculpts, paints, raises beautiful children, and even makes awesome cakes shaped like Kate Spade purses.
It appears that Valerie has passed her creative DNA onto the adorable Beka, because Beka sent me a snap guide on how to turn Keurig K-cups into seed starters. This project only took Val and Beka an afternoon to complete. Val says she will harvest the lettuce they planted right from the K-cups but when fear of frost is over, she’ll plant them outside.
Because nothing is more local than growing your own food, I planted a small garden last year with moderate success. I also helped my friend John plant, weed, dig, and harvest in his giant garden. One thing I’ve never done, though, is start my own seed. But with this guide and a Christmas gift of heirloom seeds from Val, I’m ready to give it a try.
Without further ado, here’s Beka’s snap guide. Click on the photo below or this link:
