From Networx' Adam Verwymeren:

Eggs are a versatile and readily available food, and if you're a fan of them fried, poached, boiled or scrambled, you likely have a ton of old egg cartons lying around.

Fill the cups of a paper egg carton with soil and place a seed in each one. Once the seedlings have sprouted and you're free of the final frost of the year, simply snip each cup free and pop them straight into the soil. The cardboard will decompose as your young garden grows.
