Grilled chicken, crisp cucumber, sweet strawberries, juicy mango and fresh mint leaves all rolled up in a tasty collard leaf…RECIPE

Total Time of Effort: 10 minutes
Things you will need:
Step 1: Label your cups accordingly.
Step 2: You’ll need your lid, scissors and drill if you have one. Use the drill or scissors to make holes in the lid around the straw hole. This will provide drainage for excess water in the soil. Also it’s great for when the roots grow because they can tap into the reservoir we’ll be creating.
Step 3: Use your scissors to cut just outside of the inner portion of the lid. (I’ve marked it with black to give you a visual.) You want to include the sidewalls that raise this piece up from the rest of the lid. Recycle the unused outer portion.
Step 4: Place the lid upside down inside the bottom of the cup as pictured. Voila! Reservoir created.
Step 5: Place two cups of potting mix into the cup. It’s okay if a little falls through the holes it’s not going to hurt anything. You want your dirt level to be right above the mermaid logo.
Step 6: Sprinkle in your seeds evenly across the top of the soil. Each seed packet fills two cup planters, excluding cilantro. Cilantro has larger seeds and should be split between three.
Step 7: Add a half cup of dirt and tamp it down lightly to secure in place.
Step 8: Cut your straw in half, placing part of it into the soil to resemble a cold drink.
All done! Give your seeds a little water and place in a sunny window. You will need to water these regularly as the sun will dry out the soil. Herb growth time varies on type and care. Check your seed packet for harvest information.
