      easy…if you’re using Google Chrome Browser just use the mouse to select/mark any contents you want on this article, do a right-click and select “Print”, in the “Print” option under “Destination, select “Save as PDF” and click “Save”…

      or, if you have a Mirosoft office version 2007 and above, just copy+paste the contents you wanted, and paste plus re-arrange it in the Microsoft office Words or powerpoint, then do a “Save as” “PDF”…

      Heres a link to a different an I think better version. They use a scrap of old t-shirt as the “wick” Seems like it would do a much better job than a string.

    Why is it when I try to post anything to Pinterest from this website, Pinterest tells me
    “Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam.” yet the Pin button shows 100 pins. Help!

    It’s great idea indeed! I tried it this spring and these seed starters work sooo good. Even now we have seeds planted in, because my daughter insists to watch the seeds’ growing process. She’s so fascinated by everything that happens inside her little garden. Greets!
