Yes, great gardening minds think alike. Funny that we both wrote about seeds and referenced that same blog post where I listed all the "seedy" gardener posts!

Creative way to recycle those CD spools! I like to use 8oz yogurt containers to start my seeds. I start gathering them from family in January, and feel pretty good about reusing the #5 plastics that would otherwise be thrown in the trash.

Good point Anna. I didn't think about the recycling benefit. Yogurt cups are good to use. I also use my kids pudding cups that are about the same size. Individual 16 0r 20 ounce pop bottles are also good, and half gallon milk cartons for bigger containers. And don't forget to save popsicle sticks to use as plant markers!

Anything that can be recycled and pressed into service for the garden is a good thing in my book.

Marc, thanks for the advice about light. I do have a grow light in the basement, but didn't want to take it down and move it to the greenhouse. There is sun today, so the seedlings are happy.
You have a great blog, I will add you to my friends list, so I will remember to check back.
Happy Spring!!

Thanks for the kind words - vonlafin.

You have a great blog too!

This is a really good explanation about seed starting. Thanks for commenting over at In the Garden Online---and I'm with you... I love the smell of tomato seedlings. It's the first real sign of summer, as far as I'm concerned.

I may actually take your advice and start some tomatoes now. I never start them this late, but it's worth a shot, eh?
