Paper towels? Wow - who knew!

I started gathering supplies this morning. Now, if only I can find the rest of my stupid seeds :old I'll be starting some soon. Actually, I found the corn and the broccoli - still looking for the radish and peas.

I want to try paper towel on top of soil for baby greens. I think the roots can penetrate paper towel so the plants can access soil nutrients, but the paper towel would keep the baby greens clean. IDK, it works out great in my imagination. Someone should try it. :gig
