Thank you!! I am always a bit confused on when to start my plants indoors. I love the egg carton idea. Can't wait to start getting my hands dirty again!!

I'm glad you like the idea Andrea. It's nice to be able to have the sights and smells of spring during this yucky winter weather. Enjoy!

Good tips, Alice. I like to use an old pair of tweezers to pick seeds, such as tomatoes, out of the palm of my hand, then place two in each cell such as the egg carton.

Great tip Bob. I'll have to save the tweezers that no longer work on my eyebrows. Using two seeds is great in order to increase your odds for a large number of sprouts and for growers like you who have the patience to carefully separate the roots of the seedlings. I LOVE when other gardeners share their ideas. We can all learn from each other. Keep it up!
