http://www.care2.com/greenliving/15-ways-to-reuse-newspaper.html/3 A friend sent me an e-mail knowing my interests. I liked it and I thought of sharing it here. I thought #14 in that list is interesting. I hadn't heard of recycled 'seed paper'.

I switched to homemade newspaper pots after I ran out of cow pots this year. So far I think I like them better than peat or cow pots. They don't seem to grow mold on the outside like the others do and I suspect they will break down faster when I put them in the ground since they are so much thinner.

http://www.noordinaryhomestead.com/dailiness/recycling-a-little-junk-mail/ I use a double layer of newspaper since it saves the step of cutting the paper and makes the bottom stronger.

I also tried newspaper mulch last fall. That was just a waste of my time shredding since the mulch all blew away once it dried out. I'm sure my neighbors are wondering where all the shreds came from!
