That's the way I do it too. Wish they were as easy as pepper seeds but its that sticky film on the seed that we need to eliminate otherwise seed will rot.

These won't need the grow light for some time but it's set up for when they do. Now I need potting soil and vermiculite and some thinking....

Think I will visit the nursery in the next few days and buy some tomato seeds, plus whatever else I have to get for our planting party in a couple of weeks.

I would love to get some seeds too - but other items need to happen before we can get our planters ready.
