Newspaper pots

Now that we have a greenhouse James starts lots more things from seed.  He goes through hundreds of plastic pots.  Two years ago he blogged about his little pot maker that makes 2 inch newspaper pots. http://whoisvirginia.blogspot.com/2011/04/pot-maker.html
When he said he ran out of 4 and 5 inch pots this year I decided to copy this newspaper pot idea and make some for him.  All I needed was a tin can, scissors, newspaper and a bucket of water.
4 layers of newspaper seemed to work best for me.  It wasn't too bulky and it was sturdy enough to hold its shape.
I made 40 of them and I think he's already used at least half of them.
