Planting seeds

http://www.durgan.org/URL/?SKZXL 23 January 2015 Planting seeds
This is my general procedure for starting seeds. The plastic cups have holes in the sides made with a soldering iron for drainage and to make a small reservoir for holding water. The cups are filled with my home seedling soil made in the Summer. The seeds will eventually be planted in their own cup. This batch is to test germination of last year’s tomato seeds. The plastic covers are to keep humidity high until germination. The cups are placed in a container, since my preference is for bottom watering. Since it is cold in my Zone 5, the container is placed on a heating mat.The small greenhouse is to give max light for growth, until the selected plants are placed in the outdoor garden about 24 of May.
