Seed starting. 4.2.15
Seed Starting. 4.2.15
Much as I wanted to use recycled or recyclable containers, such as little paper cups, I didn't have the energy. This setup with very thin walled plastic 6-packs, for 72 seedlings, was inexpensive. I've planted tomato seeds from last winter's order, and peppers, some basil, and some marigolds. More to follow.
I also placed okra seeds and four o'clock seeds in cups of water to soak for a day. I can plant the seeds tomorrow night.
