I've planted a bunch of seeds in starter containers.
I have a slew of seedlings at my mother's house. I, unfortunately, don't make it there enough and they're not faring too well. I should really get there more often to water them. I used egg cartons, which is economical and easy. But, when you forget about them...
For our home, since we don't have a suitable place for a lot of seedlings to sprout, I bought a tray (yes, by the hated Burpee) with a pad to hold in moisture so watering isn't a priority. And there's a cover, so it acts like a greenhouse. I have to admit...it's pretty awesome. My seeds sprouted in less than a week. I have a bazillion kale seedlings and about 25 tomato seedlings. I can't wait to transplant them into bigger containers and then into our community garden.
