Sowing more seeds

I saw these recycled paper pots at a local hardware store, and thought they'd be worth an experiment.  I loved my Cowpot trials from last summer, but the pots themselves don't hold up very well for seed starting, barely long enough to transplant a crumbling pot with a seedling.



Traditional peat pots (aside from their peat content) don't work very well, in my experience, being slow to break down, and wicking moisture from edges poking above the soil surface.

So I'm interested to see how these recycled paper pots do.  I sowed seeds of three different varieties of chard and genovose basil.  We'll see!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
